Envestors

   

Please see points below about Envestors® (the network for sophisticated investors with 3,000 members) and Envestry™ (the white-label regulated crowdfunding platform):

 

  • Established in 2004, Envestors Ltd, which  is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), runs Envestors Private Investor Network looking to invest up to £5m in high-growth businesses, usually under the EIS.

 

  • Sophisticated investors registered on the platform: 3,000. Average investment per individual per deal is £42,000, so we sit just above the “crowd”.  

 

  • Average company investment size is £450,000.   We complete a handful of £2m-£3m deals per year through Family Offices in growth companies with turnover in excess of £5m.

 

  • Investments to date: £100m+ in 200+ companies.  Most companies have been through several rounds resulting in 700+ deals in these companies.

 

  • One of our investments (Parking Eye), was sold to Capita for £50m in 2014 making an investor a 77x return. We are seeking more like that.

 

  • We review over 100 business proposals a month, of which we select 2-3 to present to our investors.

 

  • We have won “Private Investor Network of the Year” at Investor Allstars on three occasions.  An accolade we used to rubbish until we won it.  We are now most proud.

 

  • We have offices in London, Jersey and Dubai.  We are 20 people and our Chairman is Kevin Lomax (Founder of Misys plc).

 

  • In 2014, we launched Envestry™, a white-label regulated platform to help organisations manage investors and deals.  The platform is licensed to professional services firms and networking groups e.g.  Sports Investment Partners https://sportsip.envestry.com/ (sports tech investor group) and Green Angel Syndicate https://gas.envestry.com/ (green investors group),

 

 

  • We are sponsored by Smith & Williamson, Coutts & Co and CMS (Nabarro).

 

  • For companies seeking investment, please submit a summary through the website, so all Partners and the Investment Committee get to review it and binds us to comply with BVCA confidentiality and FCA guidelines: https://envestors.envestry.com/companies/new.  No cost no obligation.

 

  • For investors seeking screened dealflow and co-investment opportunities, please register at https://envestors.envestry.com/register. It is free to register and we do not share details with anyone. (You can also de-register at any time and be removed from the mailing list).

 

  • We are corporate finance brokers rather than a fund and we charge the company seeking investment 6% of the funds we introduce, plus a fixed fee from £2,950 plus VAT to complete and promote the Investment Note (which meets s21 of FSMA) and act as the corporate finance advisor.  We can also provide you with your own funding platform (Envestry™) included in this cost (with a fee of 3% of funds transacted through the platform) We do not operate on a success-fee only model, but happy to chat with no obligation.
