Venture

The first fund raised and managed by our founders back in 1984 was a £20 million venture capital fund raised from Robert Fleming and Partners.  That fund invested in unquoted technology companies in the UK, Europe and USA and ultimately distributed a 4x cash return to investors. Consequently, venture investing lies at the heart of the firm.

As part of our Private Equity capability, we have a team of investment professionals who specialise in venture investing.  Their focus is on earlier stage companies, which are often pre-profit, but with innovative technologies or services and potentially disruptive IP.

Our venture team manages the Foresight Williams Technology EIS Fund and other funds with a mandate for early stage investing.
