Albion Ventures was established to generate long term investment returns for shareholders through making venture capital investments in smaller companies.
Our investment management team has created that leading investment performance for shareholders in the Venture Capital Trusts that they manage. Our shareholder research shows that VCT investors consider dividend yield the most important investment consideration. Our funds are designed to provide a steady level of income. Our performance is testament to this and in the seventeen years since the first fund was launched, a dividend has been paid to shareholders every year.
Albion Ventures LLP was created in January 2009 when it acquired the business of Close Ventures Limited from Close Brothers Group plc and is structured as a partnership formed by the former Close Ventures management team. We think it is appropriate that a business investing in owner-managed companies is itself owner-managed.
We look to invest £1-10 million in a wide range of growing businesses, from technology orientated companies to service and asset-based businesses.
We enjoy working with smaller companies and entrepreneurial management teams, seeing our purpose as helping businesses to grow by providing financial resources as well as strategic advice. Our ultimate aim is to realise the full potential of the business invested in and so create returns for the shareholders in our funds. We act with integrity and respect for the people we deal with.
