TwentyFour’s Partners will continue to manage TwentyFour’s day-to-day operations, retaining full authority over fund investment decisions. The established TwentyFour brand will remain in place.

TwentyFour’s Partners and key employees will retain a 40 per cent stake in the business and will remain fully committed to TwentyFour.
