Charterhouse Capital Partners is a private equity investment firm focusing on leveraged buyout of established, substantial businesses, based in Western Europe. Charterhouse focuses on a variety of industrial and commercial sectors, with focus on investments in chemicals, leisure, engineering and business support services.
Charterhouse is based in London, England, and was founded in 1982 as the European investment arm of Charterhouse Bank. The firm has approximately €8.4 billion of capital under management and was among the 50 largest private equity firms globally.
The firm's predecessors began managing private equity investments in the UK in 1975 and began pursuing leveraged buyout investments in 1982. In June 2001, the firm's management completed a management buyout from its then parent HSBC to become an independent investment firm.
Founded in 1934, Charterhouse Capital Partners is the oldest buyout firm in Britain. In 2015, The Wall Street Journal called Charterhouse Capital Partners "the elder statesman of British private equity, 80 years old and among London's most prestigious and private firms". Becky Pritchard wrote in The Wall Street Journal that Charterhouse is a "legendary low-profile firm".
