The Regional Investment Fund

The £38 million Foresight Regional Investment Fund is dedicated to making equity investments of up to £5 million in small and medium sized growth companies in the North West of England, North Wales and South Yorkshire. We are focused on applying a professional approach to small cap private equity: working in partnership with management teams to grow their companies and create value for all shareholders.

Foresight Group, an independent infrastructure and private equity investment manager, has launched the Fund to address a gap in the local funding market and to target:

  • Private equity investments of £1m to £5m in local growth SMEs
  • Full range of transaction types including buy-outs, buy-ins, equity release, acquisition finance and growth capital
  • Companies across a broad range of sectors including business services, consumer and leisure, healthcare, engineering and industrials and TMT
  • Typically, companies with revenue of £2m - £30m with a minimum EBITDA of £0.5m

Foresight, on behalf of the Fund, is seeking to make investments into eligible businesses in the Region to support the growth plans and business opportunities that exist today and in the future.
