Growing the economy through regional investing

As a leading SME investment manager, with regional offices in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Nottingham, Cambridge, Leicester and Milton Keynes, we have been growing the economy through regional investment for over 35 years.

Our five institutional regional funds, The Regional Investment Fund LP, Foresight Nottingham Fund, Foresight East of England Fund, Foresight Scottish Growth Fund and Foresight Midlands Engine Investment Fund, alongside our VCTs are injecting much needed capital into ambitious and growing SMEs around the UK and have returned an average of c. 3x on full or partial realisations since 2010.

Amongst around 150 others, Specac is an SME that has benefited from the investment and guidance of our Private Equity team over the years. Since Foresight investment, Specac has doubled in size and has sights set on further growth in the coming years.

You don’t need to take our word for it; David Smith, Managing Director of Specac, will tell you himself.

This is just one example of how our specialists are helping make a better future for our investors, for our investee companies, for our partners, for our colleagues and ultimately for the world in which we live.
