BP Marsh & Partners

B. P. Marsh is a specialist private equity investor in early stage financial services businesses and will consider investment opportunities based in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and occasionally elsewhere. We typically invest amounts of up to £2.5m in people businesses with good management. We only take minority equity positions and do not seek to impose exit pressures, preferring to work alongside management to develop a mutually beneficial exit route and maximise value. We are also able to provide follow-on funding for successful companies in our portfolio when required for further growth. B. P. Marsh has a reputation within its sector for developing strong business partnerships with its investee companies and helping talented management teams to realise their ambitions. We insist on appointing a non-executive director to the board of each of our investee companies and are able to provide consultancy and administrative services when required. B. P. Marsh has invested in over 25 financial service businesses since it was founded in 1990 and in February 2006 admitted its shares for trading on the Alternative Investment Market.
