• Duke Royalty delivered £1.9 million of capital to Bakhchysarai (Ireland) Limited (BIL) to fund the management buyout of Brightwater Selection
  • The management buyout, completed in September 2018, was led by industry veteran and incumbent Managing Director Barbara McGrath
  • Duke also helped BIL complete its second acquisition in January 2020 with funding of £7.7 million when it acquired PE Global, one of the leading Healthcare and Life Sciences Recruiters in Ireland


“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.”
