Alexander Mann Solutions and New Mountain Capital
Alexander Mann Solutions was backed by New Mountain Capital in a £260m buyout in December 2013, after they identified us through their multiyear and proactive search for business services that lower costs while raising quality.
New Mountain Capital's mission is to be best in class among alternative asset managers as measured by returns, control of risk, service to our investors and the quality of the businesses it builds. All of New Mountain Capital's efforts emphasise intensive fundamental research and a focus on growth and investor "value added", rather than reliance on excessive risk, as the best path to high and consistent long term returns. New Mountain Capital is a generalist firm, but also has proactively developed particular research and operational expertise in carefully selected "defensive growth" niches that include business services. New Mountain emphasises growth and value added, rather than debt, as the correct way to generate long term private equity returns. New Mountain Capital achieved its success by helping build great businesses with strong balance sheets. New Mountain Capital has approximately $11.5 billion of private equity capital through four New Mountain Partners funds.
