Livingbridge first invested in Reed & Mackay in 2005 before undertaking a reinvestment with ECI in April 2011. Over this period the business has been transformed through investment in people and technology and has delivered consistent, profitable growth. Since the reinvestment in 2011 highlights include:
The business is now ideally placed to take its market leading service proposition to an increasingly international audience with support and funding from Inflexion.
Fred Stratford, CEO at Reed & Mackay commented: “It has been an enjoyable and rewarding few years working with ECI and Livingbridge to help strengthen Reed & Mackay’s International footprint and to develop the value proposition in line with client demand. We have achieved a huge amount together and now I look forward to working with Gareth Healy, Mark Williams and the team at Inflexion on our next phase of growth.”
Chris Watt, at ECI, commented: “We wish the team every success for the future. It has been a pleasure working with Fred, his team at Reed & Mackay and Shani at Livingbridge, over the past five years and to see the company develop into a world class business that is genuinely differentiated in its field.”
Shani Zindel, at Livingbridge, commented: “It has been fantastic to have been part of the Reed & Mackay growth story over the last 11 years, a period that has seen them flourish as a market leader in strategic travel management for blue chip organisations. We have been proud to partner with Reed & Mackay over this period, and it’s been a pleasure to work with ECI since 2011. We wish the Reed & Mackay team the greatest success for the future.”

Past performance and risk of loss of capital
The past performance of the funds is not a guide to their future performance. The value of the funds depends on the performance of the underlying assets. The value of the investment and dividend stream from the funds can rise and fall. Investors may get back less than originally invested. There can be no guarantee that investment objectives of any of the funds will be achieved.
Risks inherent in investing in small companies
Investment in smaller companies which are traded on AIM or PLUS Markets, by its nature, involves a higher degree of risk than investment in larger companies, including those traded on the main market. In particular, smaller companies often have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be dependent for their management on a smaller number of key individuals. In addition, the market for shares in smaller companies is often less liquid than that for shares in larger companies, bringing with it potential difficulties in acquiring, valuing and disposing of such shares. Investments held by the funds may be difficult to realise. The fact that a share is traded on AIM or PLUS-Markets does not guarantee its liquidity. The spread between the buying and selling price of such shares may be wide and thus the price used for valuation may not be achievable.
