|Description||Venture capital investors|
Their investment management team has created market leading investment performance for the shareholders in the seven Venture Capital Trusts they manage. In the twelve years since the first fund was launched, a dividend has been paid by every fund, every year, totalling some Â£81 million - more than any other VCT manager. Albion Ventures LLP was created in January 2009 when it acquired the business of Close Ventures Limited from Close Brothers Group plc and is structured as a partnership formed by the former Close Ventures management team. They think it is appropriate that a business investing in owner-managed companies is itself owner-managed. They look to invest Â£1-10 million in a wide range of growing businesses, from technology orientated companies to service and asset-based businesses.
