Partnering With Foresight
Our objective is to be the SME investment partner of choice for dynamic and entrepreneurial management teams throughout the UK. With a focus on a variety of investment types, providing up to £5m initially, but with capacity for significant follow-on, our services extend well beyond the capital we provide.
Our approach is flexible and we have the ability to structure transactions to meet a particular requirement. We also control the money we manage, allowing us to move quickly through the investment process.
