Ownership Philosophy: Perpetual & Autonomous

At Vela, we buy and hold companies forever, which requires continuous investment in our businesses – their products, brands and people – and a long-term horizon for strategic decisions.

The philosophy of perpetual ownership manifests itself in policy entirely focused on the continuity of business. This allows management to focus on the quality of day-to-day operations and sustainable organic growth. Our preference is to keep our businesses largely autonomous and decentralised, with brands and cultures intact (though improved wherever possible) after acquisition.
