melior is dedicated to investing in companies on the island of Ireland and the Melior team are constantly seeking opportunities to partner with motivated and talented management teams who wish to grow their businesses.

As equity investors, alignment of interest is at the core of everything we do. Our fundamental goal is to act as trusted partners to our investors, to the advisors we work with and to the shareholders, founders and management teams of our portfolio companies. This alignment of interest is evidenced by the fact that the Melior team will personally invest in every investment we make.

Our goal is to reduce those challenges and to enable management teams to run their businesses while at the same time providing opportunities, support, strategic challenge and capital to help them realise their full potential.
