Equity funding

We are active providers of growth capital to some of the UK’s brightest businesses through our specialist tax advantaged products such as Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs) and Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS) and also by raising equity for high quality businesses who may not qualify under specific scheme rules.

Seneca Equity Investment

Our equity funding spans a wide variety of situations across many different sectors. Whether this capital is deployed from Seneca’s own EIS and VCT funds, or is brought together using our co-investment partners, depends on the size and circumstances of each opportunity.

We are a sector-agnostic investor and we seek to deploy in the range of £0.5 million-£3 million per transaction. To date we have invested more than £130 million into more than 100 SMEs, which has provided capital to support growth ambitions, IPOs, management buy outs/buy-ins, retirement sales and corporate acquisition strategies.

The Seneca team has significant experience working with entrepreneurs and SME teams both as sole or lead investor or in combination with external co-investment parties.
