We pursue a strategy of investment to grow smaller businesses across the UK through our regional office network
We aim to support growth and innovation amongst ambitious small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); filling the funding gap that prevails for smaller companies, and creating asmarter futurefor local enterprise and business.
We manage our institutional regional funds from our offices in Nottingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Leicester and Milton Keynes. Our teams work closely with their local adviser networks to identify appropriate opportunities and make investments typically between £100,000 to £5 million. As a result, we have built up an extensive network of more than 1,500 active corporate finance advisers and other professional SME advisers across the country.
We review more than 1,800 investment opportunities every year, reflecting the benefits of our regional presence and multi-fund approach.
