• Duke Royalty delivered £1.9 million of capital to Bakhchysarai (Ireland) Limited (BIL) to fund the management buyout of Brightwater Selection in September 2018, supporting industry veteran and incumbent Managing Director Barbara McGrath
  • Duke also helped BIL complete its second and third acquisitions in January 2020 and October 2021, respectively, with total funding of £11.9m million, acquiring PE Global, one of the leading Healthcare and Life Sciences Recruiters in Ireland, and Vantage Resourcing, an IT contracting and talent acquisition business that sources specialist IT professionals on medium to long term contracts to a range of major Irish organisations.

“From our first meeting, Duke Royalty understood our objectives and felt like the perfect funding solution to support our ambitious growth plans. The team’s attention to detail and clear communication meant that we felt very supported from beginning to end. I would have no hesitation in recommending their innovative funding solutions to other companies seeking capital.”
