our people

The culture and people are the best thing about True. I always think about how lucky I am to have been able to start my career at True with people who genuinely care about my personal and professional growth.

Qianhui Yang, Investment Analyst

Having previously worked with True when at the John Lewis Partnership, I recognised the potential of the unique model that True operates and saw a team with huge ambition to grow something really special.

Archie Mason, Director, Innovation

I wanted to join True because it’s a different way of approaching the industry we’re in, and this coupled with the retail and consumer angle gave me real reason to be excited.

Cameron Kanda, Investment Analyst

I wanted to be a part of True because we’re building something in a company that shared similar ideals to myself. I was looking to find a common goal and I instantly knew from meeting Matt and Paul that I liked them, wanted to work with them and be on the True journey.

Serena McCutcheon, Head of People and Operations

A portfolio that excites us. Every day.

Insight

Showrooming In The Digital Age

When done well, D2C and e-commerce are a cost-efficient way to start and grow a retail business or brand. But as inflation bites and consumer confidence takes a tumble, retailers and brands are rightly concerned about the months ahead, and what the future strategy should be and whether omnichannel strategies that include stores should play a role. We summarise some key takeaways we’ve learnt from brands in our portfolio with a strong omnichannel mix.
