Synarbor is a market-leading provider of resource solutions and specialist support services within the public service sector, specialising in education and social care. It has grown through a number of strategic acquisitions.

Risk Capital Partners invested by way of acquiring shares in AIM listed Synarbor PLC (formerly known as Public Recruitment Group).

Why we invested:

  • Resilience of government spending on education
  • Repair a heavily indebted balance sheet
  • Back a new management team to grow the business


RCP successfully exited its investment by way of a secondary buyout in 2015.
