Triton has sponsored six private equity funds to date with committed capital of over €14 billion. The private equity buyout funds primarily invests in mid-market businesses in German-speaking countries, the Nordic countries, the Benelux region, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. We focus on companies with the potential to create sustainable, long-term value through changing economic cycles and we work closely with management to achieve that. We are currently invested in companies in Europe, with combined sales of around €17 billion and more than 81,000 employees.
Triton considers these to form part of a single investment strategy; however, according to the UN PRI definitions that suggests investments in the equity of financially stressed companies should be considered separately to leveraged buyouts, we have accounted for this separately in the strategy section above.
Additionally, and in connection with its private equity strategy of investing in underperforming businesses throughout the Triton Region, Triton and its advisers have, since 2007, generated a large number of debt investment opportunities. Triton has significant experience investing in distressed situations and in successfully raised the Triton Debt Opportunities ("TDO") Fund I in 2014 and TDO Fund II in 2019. The TDO funds invest in non-control debt positions within the Triton's focus regions
