Why we like it

For many companies GDPR has made handling consumer information complicated and created regulatory risk. Many existing platforms were unable to adapt to the new rules, creating a gap in the market. Permutive’s roster of household names as customers is testament to its value and position in market. It’s now the partner of choice for privacy compliant targeting for more than 70% of the UK’s top publishers ¹ -including the Financial Times, The Economist, Buzzfeed, Conde Nast, Immediate Media, Future and Conde Nast International.

What our fund managers say

“We see Permutive as a special business with immense potential. A lot has changed since we first invested; previously board meetings were held in kitchens and the strategy had to be agile in order to refine the product and vision. Today, however, Permutive has evolved its offering to become the UK category leader in its field and is driving innovation to beat billion-dollar global businesses on a consistent basis in trial processes. “
