Throughout the success of the HCIG (nGage Specialist Recruitment) buy and build platform Tristan decided to set up a new fund with an Executive Board consisting of operator-investors who understand how to build value in owner-managed businesses. Tristan focuses the board on combined knowledge to support the management of the portfolio companies to help accelerate their growth and increase capital value. Over the last three years, The Invest|R Group (now known as Ignata) has invested in SF Group, Timothy James Consulting, 360 Resourcing Solutions, Matt Burton Associates, SJC Partners, CV Knowhow and Exsurgo. These brands place qualified professionals into the following sectors:
  • Finance & Accounting
  • Human Resources
  • Programme & Project Management
  • Oil & Gas
  • Education
  • Technology
  • Retail
  • Hospitality & Leisure
The fund has grown from inception to £5 million profit in less than 3 years and continues to scale rapidly.
