Richard Dayman

Founding Partner

Richard started his career as a consultant with McKinsey & Company, focusing on strategy and operational work with businesses in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Richard then spent 10 years in mid-market private equity with ICG in London. He has investment experience across a wide range of industries, including business services, travel, restaurants, and food manufacturing and services. Flexible capital was a feature of these investments, with a range of situations including minority and majority equity holdings, as well as subordinated debt positions. 
These investments were in partnership with founders or family shareholders, and management teams.

Richard holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree with First Class Honours in Finance from the University of Auckland.
His wife, Christina, is originally from Brisbane and they are both enjoying the quality of life in Queensland having moved back here in 2018.

Richard has been pleasantly surprised by how little grief he has received (to date...) for being a Kiwi.
