We’re delighted to announce that we have won UK House of the Year at the 2017 Real Deals Private Equity Awards.
The award recognises a busy year for Livingbridge which saw us complete our landmark 100th investment, with ten new investments and nine exits achieved during 2016. We also opened our first international office in Australia and successfully closed our £660m fund in late summer 2016, our eighth and largest fundraise to date. This means we now have £1 billion to invest over the next 5 years, committing anywhere from £2 million to £50 million to fast-growing companies.
Wol Kolade, Managing Partner, says: “We’re delighted to have won this award and it is a testament to the endeavours of the whole Livingbridge team. We thank everyone who has worked with us in the last year, especially the Limited Partners who have entrusted us with their capital and the talented entrepreneurs who have partnered with us for the next stage of their growth journey. We look forward to continuing our success in what is already proving to be a busy and exciting 2017.”
