Years In Business

Advent Partners is one of Australia’s longest-standing investment managers, having established eight funds since 1984. Our investors include some of Australia’s largest superannuation funds, clients of Australia’s premier advisory groups, sovereign pension funds, and international endowment funds.

Our Values

We set out on a journey with our founders and entrepreneurs to help take their vision and empower them to turn it into reality. We’re here to help, to challenge, to offer insights and advice, and build best-in-class businesses. We work together to get things done.

Investment is more than the bottom line. To build outstanding companies, you have to first build trust. We look to build great relationships through strong values, listening, providing honest advice and feedback, and being a reliable partner.

Harnessing wide-ranging backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, we’re focused on building an environment where the best ideas win. 

Our team leverages its deep knowledge and expertise to uncover insights and valuable intelligence to help our founders and management teams develop outstanding businesses and deliver results.

Personalised partnership approach.

Underpinning everything we do is an emphasis on a team-driven, partnership approach. We work with founders to make their vision a reality. We bring more than just capital to the table. Taking a hands-on approach, we provide real-world experience in building market-leading operations.

Sustainable Investing

We recognise that we have broader responsibilities to not just our stakeholders but the wider community.

This view informs how we invest and who we invest in. We have a robust, responsible investing framework, which complies with the Australian Investment Council’s Code of Private Equity Governance. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards are a foundation of all our pre-investment negotiations and ongoing portfolio management processes.

Our responsible investing policies are designed to ensure the highest standard of management and compliance. They are also tailored for each investee so that they are able to meet the specific issues unique to their industry.

Since the end of 2020, Advent Partners is proud of its commitment to becoming carbon neutral.  See further details here.
