global executive search
exclusively for​
private equity SaaS companies​

Who we are
Welcome to capital futures, we are a search firm exclusively focussed on providing executive talent within private equity backed software and technology companies undergoing major transformation and growth.

In a business sector that has built its reputation upon bringing superior skills to accelerate value creation, it is critical to identify a leadership team with a strong execution mindset and fundamental understanding of the pace and timing of private equity. With a typical investment period of 3 to 5 years, we understand that life at a private equity portfolio can be highly demanding and is often uncompromising in its requirement for detail.

We work closely with our clients to develop deep and meaningful knowledge of their organisational structure, business strategy, challenges, culture and values. We are passionate about client excellence, always striving to provide the best advice and solutions to our clients and representing them with the highest level of professionalism in the marketplace. We align ourselves with our clients’ philosophy and work relentlessly to ensure that our clients make the best appointment whilst also minimising their time and cost spent hiring.

Our Approach

We put our customers at the heart of everything that we do, it is our style to be consultative. We listen and take the time to really understand what our clients want. As a firm, we adopt the following principals

Focused On Results

We work fast and pride ourselves on being results focussed with a high quality experience and outcome for all of our clients.

Global Process

Global Network, Global Process
In our experience many executives will consider relocating for the right position, running a global process dramatically increases the probability of finding the right candidate with little or no compromise on key criteria.

Research Led

In our quest to leave no stone unturned to find the best talent for our clients, our process is research-led. We also utilise our extensive global professional network, rather than rely solely on it to yield the result, ensuring strength and depth in our candidate shortlists.


We operate a strong culture of transparency which is evidenced in the way we perform our searches as well as how we deal with our clients and candidates. We communicate regularly and responsively.


These are by no means entirely mechanical processes, our experience has taught us to trust in our judgement as well as our reason, we have a genuine emotional connection with our clients and are instinctive.

Minimised Restrictions

It is our policy to represent a small number of client businesses in each sector in order to avoid “off-limits” search restrictions and avoid conflict of interest.


We maintain a policy of absolute discretion and respect the confidential nature of sensitive information provided by all parties.
