Pre Deal

The first step, known as the pre deal, consists of origination, early access and advisor sourcing. The first step of the private equity cycle focuses on the understanding of leadership teams ahead of investments through detailed evaluation, creating further opportunities for both businesses and investors.

Post Deal

The post deal is based upon leadership evaluation and the changes that need to be made in order to improve the likelihood of success. This includes supporting and steering the leadership team to ensure the business has as successful an exit as possible through benchmarking and gap analysis.


Focusing primarily on management optimisation, this step allows for adapting to market, industry and team changes. This in turn enables investors, businesses, and executives to adapt appropriately and efficiently through bespoke solutions whilst DRAX offers solutions and complementarity.
