Symvan Capital is an investment fund advisor dedicated to finding start-up businesses suitable for investment and then supporting them when funds have been provided. We provide an alternative investment approach to SME investing with the aim of delivering superior returns.
Symvan’s principals bring sector-focused SME corporate finance experience, rather than a background of just traditional asset management. Our tax-efficient technology-focused portfolios are relatively small compared to competitors, allowing us to devote greater resource and time for the success of the investee company, rather than a short-term view by maximizing the funds raised. Whilst our decisions are always in the best interests of the companies’ shareholders, our focus rests primarily on helping investee companies achieve the necessary follow-on capital they will require to grow, ‘cross-fertilising’ companies within our own network of professional and industry contacts, and ensuring each has the advice and support needed to successfully navigate the pitfalls every start-up typically faces.
How are we different? We employ a ‘deeper not wider’ approach to investments. We limit the number of investee companies so we can spend more time with management before investing, and make sure portfolio companies are given the necessary time and resource to fully take advantage of our ability to support them with follow-on funding. Our sister business, Symvan Securities is a corporate finance advisor dedicated to working with our portfolio companies to assist them with follow-on funding requirements.
