With a presence in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham, Seneca Partners has an excellent network in the UK’s SME heartlands which enables us to maintain a buoyant pipeline. As funding and advisory specialists for SMEs, Seneca is at the forefront when it comes to providing capital for profitable and growing companies. We receive over 500 new leads and subsequently meet over 200 management teams each year from which we are able to focus our attentions on the most compelling investment opportunities for our investors.
With close to £40 million now raised within our EIS Portfolio Service, Seneca expects an intense period of investment activity in the run up to tax year end on 5th April.
Investment Director, John Davies commented, “Our pipeline of deals is arguably as strong as we have seen at any time. Not only have we brought an excellent spread of investable businesses through our selection and due diligence processes which we expect to complete before the 5th April, but the longer term view towards summer suggests we will have a prolonged period of investment activity. We probably didn’t complete as many deals as we anticipated in Q4, for all the right reasons, but these have completed in Q1 of 2017 and alongside those which are mapped for completion in the next few weeks it points to a very active period for our Portfolio Service investors.”
