In essence, West Hill Capital was established in order to leverage the significant network and contact base arising from this experience and to source and execute smaller transactions of £1-15m, which often qualify for tax breaks under the Enterprise Investment Scheme.
As a result, private investors are provided with unrivalled direct access to highly attractive growth businesses. Whether it’s a transaction worth £1bn or £1m, the same principles apply, the partners of West Hill source opportunities in the industries that they know best, where they have enjoyed the most success and have the strongest connections.
In recent years, West Hill Capital has raised in excess of £225m for a portfolio of innovative financial services businesses and pioneering technology companies with global potential.
As a demonstration of confidence, the partners of West Hill obtain an equity interest in every Company in the portfolio and have also personally invested several million pounds into investee companies on exactly the same terms as investors.
