Experienced Team

We bring together teams of highly-experienced investors and operational specialists to help management teams exceed their ambition. We’ve got a great track record of helping our portfolio companies to open up new markets or launch new products across a wide range of sectors.

Regional Footprint

From Poulton Le Fylde to Peterborough and Abingdon to Abertay our Investment Teams are based in the communities in which we invest. The teams have extensive networks built over many years so that we can help our portfolio to capitalise on regional, national and global opportunities.

Mercia's Platform Team

The Platform

We use inhouse resources, known as ‘The Platform’, to offer a wide range of services including research, legal and corporate finance advice, as well as executive searches. The Platform is a centralised resource made possible via Mercia’s own scale of operation and portfolio of companies.

Group Resources

We’ve grown considerably as a Group over the last few years. We have capital to invest from both our third-party funds and proprietary capital – our “Complete Capital Solution”. As a portfolio teams’ funding requirements grow, we’re agile enough to accommodate those needs and that’s great news for businesses which may need more than one round of funding and want an investment partner for the long term.
