Matthew Jacobs

Investment team

“I love getting to understand new sectors and business models and discovering exciting new growth opportunities.”

I work in the new investment team where I am privileged to have the opportunity to meet and work with a diverse range of businesses and entrepreneurs. 

After studying biochemistry at Bristol University I trained as a chartered accountant at PwC. I spent four years there working on deals across a range of sectors before jumping ship and joining Sainsbury’s. I was fortunate to work on a number of key strategic projects during my time at Sainsbury’s where I discovered a passion for working in smaller project teams delivering something innovative and exciting.

Outside of work I am a long suffering Fulham fan with a passion for watching live music.
