Portchester Equity Limited is a privately owned holding company that owns companies in long term partnership with management.

Our foundations have been built upon over many generations, going back to 1539 when the Thistlethwayte family first acquired the Southwick Estate. In 2007 the family began investing in operating companies as part of its strategy of asset diversification. In 2010 Portchester was set as a holding company for these investments in private UK companies.

Portchester’s executives are business people with decades of experience both operationally and as investors. We understand the opportunities presented as well as challenges of being an owner, and work through these together with our business managers.

Portchester works together with management teams who are aligned as equity partners, and empowered to execute a shared strategy.
