Newcastle-based TSG, a Microsoft Solutions partner, specialises in IT and cloud solutions for SMBs. With over 250 employees, TSG serves 1,300 clients in a growing market driven by outsourcing and digitalisation. 

TSG’s management will reinvest proceeds from the transaction, Pictet explained.

Pictet Alternative Advisors, part of the Pictet Group, manages investments in private equity, credit, hedge funds, and real estate, with €24bn in private equity assets as of March 31, 2024. 

Andrzej Sokolowski, Head of UK for Direct Private Equity at Pictet, added: “We see significant potential to increase TSG’s growth organically and via M&A. 

“That includes solution areas in Azure, Dynamics and cybersecurity, as well as accelerating deployment of AI tools.”
