Kilara Private Equity

We invest in companies that are resilient and focussed on generating significant profits together with significant climate positive outcomes.

Our Approach

We partner with scalable small to medium businesses, with proven track records in their sector, to deliver  sustainable returns to our partners and investors.

The Kilara Growth Fund focuses on companies where deep sustainability is embedded in products, culture and governance. We see opportunities to unlock value creation, market penetration and sales growth by aligning capital with the evolving social and environmental needs of society. Through the re-investment of profits, we hope to accelerate the transition towards the new normal.

Investment Criteria

We believe that profit and purpose aren’t mutually exclusive; sustainable profits can drive positive change and deliver meaningful outcomes for society as a whole.

We seek founders and managers who understand this commitment to community and planet and are able to position their businesses to capture evolving consumer trends.

We believe that sustainable business practices build deep and trusted relationships with stakeholders and result in lower risk companies with durable competitive advantages. Our partnership approach ensures interests are aligned between shareholders, founders and managers from investment to exit.
