Venture Broking

The Numis Venture Broking team, led by Garri Jones, is focussed on the private growth equity and venture capital markets. The fight for private capital has gone global, with start-up and scale-up companies increasingly competing internationally for funding. We seek to bridge the annual £3-6bn funding gap in UK venture capital identified by the UK Government Patient Capital Review. The team builds on Numis’ dominant public equity franchise to access capital for both venture platforms (which invest in start-up companies at the earlier stages) and the companies themselves as they scale-up. It has a core client base of 400 global investors in the asset class, including institutions, states, corporates and high net worth individuals.

The team is complemented by our Venture Research team, led by Nick James, which publishes thematic reports and the monthly ScaleUp Views newsletter. ScaleUp Views provides analysis and news of the UK venture ecosystem. In each issue it features a company from the NumisScaleUpT100 list, which the team believes represents 100 of the most interesting private companies in the UK, where a growth equity funding round is expected in the next 12-18 months. It also provides analysis of the venture and growth equity asset class.
