IW Capital is a firm believer in the long-term growth potential of Britain’s rapidly expanding community of scaling businesses. Since 2010, we have been providing scaling SMEs with much needed capital to ensure they are well-positioned to meet their full investment potential.
Guided by an executive team with around 100 years’ collective experience in SME investment, our company portfolio is sector agnostic and spread across the UK.
We back good management teams. IW Capital provides growth funding for UK-managed unquoted companies across all sectors. Our focus is on investing £1 million to £5 million in eligible, qualifying & growing businesses. We have a strong preference to invest in profitable businesses, but we also back younger, revenue generating businesses and turnarounds where we can see a clear route to profitability.
We provide capital to support growth, management buyouts and equity release transactions. IW Capital is able to provide the support that a growing business may need through successive rounds of funding. IW Capital works closely with investee companies, becoming their funding partner for the medium to long term.
Growth / Development Capital
We provide established companies with the necessary capital to facilitate organic or acquisitive growth
We provide strong management teams with the funding they need to purchase the business and take control of a private company.
Equity release / Replacement Capital
We can help eligible business owners to diversify their wealth, enabling management shareholders to realise part of their capital whilst continuing to drive the business forward.
We believe in backing good management teams and their plans. We become supportive funding partners; we do not manage the businesses. Funding for every qualifying investment is sourced from our own client base of successful entrepreneurs and investors. This means that our portfolio companies may be able to draw on the contacts and expertise of our client investors.
We structure our investments to meet the needs of the investee companies, whilst providing, where possible, a tax-efficient investment opportunity for our investors through the Enterprise Investment Scheme.
