The Regional Investment Fund
The £58 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:
Investments of £1m to £5m
The Fund will make private equity investments of £1m to £5m in local growth SMEs.
Range of transaction types
The Fund will offer the full range of transaction types including buy-outs, buy-ins, equity release, acquisition finance and growth capital.
Broad range of sectors
The Fund will target companies across a broad range of sectors including business services, consumer and leisure, healthcare, engineering and industrials and TMT.
Eligible companies with a revenue of between £2m-£30m
The Fund will typically target 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.
