Robyn Smith

Investment team

“The great thing about this role is the number of inspiring and driven entrepreneurs we get to meet and work alongside to deliver exciting strategies and build truly great businesses.”

I work with companies across the full span of our investment period, from the point they join the Livingbridge portfolio to our eventual exit.  We draw upon the wide experience both within the firm and further afield to help deliver the growth strategies that satisfy the highly ambitious entrepreneurs we partner with.

After graduating with a degree in Economics from Durham I spent a year working for a financial services business in the Middle East, before heading back to the UK where I trained as an accountant at KPMG. During my time there I worked within the Strategy Consulting practice for a number of years, before joining the Corporate Finance M&A team, where I focussed on mid-market Private Equity transactions.

One of things I love about my role at Livingbridge is combining thinking on growth strategy, operating model design and market dynamics with a real awareness of the impact each of these can have on the intrinsic value of a business.

When time (and the weather..) allows, I love to spend my time out on the water as a passionate sailor and yacht racer, be that on a reservoir by Heathrow or further afield. I also thoroughly enjoy rugby and cricket, although far more often as a spectator these days!
