Our belief is that the UK capital markets are ineffective at financing technology SMEs reaching commercialisation.

The public sector are not equipped to provide the ‘smart capital’ required to bridge the funding gap but can provide significant leverage. The private sector is limited as private funds are rarely focused on early stage; and whilst angels, investment clubs, platforms and smaller family offices are critical investors, they lack institutional investment support and leadership.

Many high potential technology companies fail as they do not have either the commercial skill or financial capital required to accelerate them through to market.

NCL’s investment philosophy is set to identify high potential technology SMEs within thematic global growth sectors. By applying both experience and capital at an earlier stage than most typical funds, NCL can identify exciting companies, enhance survival rates and extract superior value for our investors.
