Our Portfolio
Ben HowatGM, SmartClinics

The best thing about working in a Genesis backed business is that they genuinely are your partners from the start. Collaboratively working with you to achieve growth targets, I really felt like they were there with me, supporting the business every step of the way.

Genesis operates as a true partner, by having sound and solid health care business understanding in all areas, including clinical governance, customer outcomes, employee value and invest in these areas, knowing thebenefits of this investment will result in even further growth as industry leaders.

Jason ValentineCEO, Agilex Biolabs

I’ve worked with a few investors, and it’s refreshing to work with one that specialises in healthcare and instantly understands the industry. It makes a huge difference to how we work together.

Ruth LimkinCEO, The Banyans

As a founder, finding the right partner for the business was imperative to ensure ongoing alignment of purpose and vision. Since the investment was finalised, the working relationship has been consistent with the promise. I feel supported in my growth ambitions and it feels like a genuine partnership.

Mark O’BrienGM, Totally Smiles

I’ve been with the business through some difficult times, but it’s been totally different since Genesis invested. The ‘hands on’ support of an experienced healthcare investor has been transformative for this business.

Julie PattersonMD, Therapy Pro

We were not actively seeking a partner - but when Genesis approached us we were struck by how much value they could add, and the practical nature of how that could happen. Since formally becoming partners the experience of that promise is being realised and it has been great to see it in action... we are seeing a really positive impact for Therapy Pro.

Judi CohenDirector, General Homecare

It was a big decision to sell my business, which I had owned for 15 years, to Genesis. Most important to me was ensuring that our values aligned. Genesis were very professional and considerate right through the process, displaying those attributes that I was seeking. I felt confident at the time it was a good decision and one year on my view has not changed.

Norbert WaltherPrincipal, 5P Advisory & Consulting

I have worked with a number of Private Equity firms in healthcare. Genesis’ singular focus and depth of understanding how to create value truly stands out. It has been great to collaborate with Genesis and see the impact they can have to healthcare businesses realising substantial growth and value creation ambitions!
