 I have been truly impressed with the professionalism of the Gresham team and can clearly see how they have earned a reputation for being one of the best Private Equity houses in the industry.

7city Learning

Investment Overview

7city is a global training provider primarily servicing the top 100 financial institutions delivering courses to 20,000+ delegates each year, in the classroom and via state-of-the-art distance learning solutions. Its training centres are based in London, New York and Singapore.

Why we liked it

A key attraction of the deal was that commercial referencing evidenced a best in class service offering through an extremely high quality tutor faculty and an ability to take training to bespoke client needs.

How did we help?

The business’ product offering has expanded significantly since investment and clients now include major corporates as well as investment banks. The Singapore office opened in 2008 and the company is winning major contracts in the  Middle East.

Gresham’s corporate contacts have brought a number of customers who now use 7city for their training.
