ALL STAKEHOLDERS DESERVE TO DERIVE VALUE

Our approach

VALUE WE BRING

When we partner with businesses, we bring three key ingredients to the relationship.

default

Development Capital

Growth & Advice

Development Capital

The initial entry point and growth enabler for our partnerships, we also provide skills and support on corporate structuring, acquisitions, tax and other capital related services.

default

Strategic Advisory

Support & Innovation

Strategic Advisory

Support services such as accounting, corporate finance, governance & compliance, underwriting & actuarial, asset management, structuring and analytics. Partners are also able to cross fertilise ideas and exchange best practices with each other.
default

Underwriting Capacity

Access, expertise & alignment

Underwriting Capacity

Our relationships with insurance licenses bring access to underwriting, product development and reinsurance capability across lines such as life, pet, motor, creditor, business, travel, cycling and insurance backed guarantees. We align the interests between distribution and underwriting as this creates a more sustainable relationship.

PARTNERSHIP CRITERIA

Correlation is not like a typical private equity firm. We usually take a minority stake and with long term capital, we are always able to follow the ambitions of our partners. We prioritise opportunities where we feel that we can continuously add value and above all else, where we share common values.

We partner where there is a growing, viable sector within a niche market with a clearly identifiable underwriting opportunity for high volume, personal lines insurance. We invest in businesses with sustained commercial viability, which are past the start-up phase and require better underwriting capacity and alignment, sustainable strategic support and / or development capital to realise their growth potential. 

Our Values

Whilst we believe in having fun, we take our values very seriously and ask our partners to let us know if we ever step out of line from them.

PARTNERSHIP PERMEATES EVERYTHING WE DO

WORKING HARD MUST BE FUN

THINK CONTEMPORARY, CONVENTION IS NOT ALWAYS CORRECT

WE DON'T TAKE RISKS WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND OR MEASURE

EGOS DON'T FIT OUR SPACE

ALL STAKEHOLDERS DESERVE TO DERIVE VALUE

SUITS DON'T MAKE YOU SMART

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AT YOUR DESK TO BE WORKING

TOMORROW MUST BE PLANNED FOR TODAY

CULTURE & COMMUNITY

Think contemporary, convention is not always correct. People are core to everything we do, so we find innovative ways to support our community and build relationships.
