EV Growth II invests in some of the most dynamic businesses in the UK regions, particularly in the North of England, which is one of Mercia’s core investment regions. We will typically take minority positions alongside the management team so that we can work together to generate growth and deliver attractive returns for management and for Fund investors.

Our experience, over many years investing in SMEs in the UK regions, shows that, to unlock growth and value, a business needs not just access to capital, it also needs strategic input and a patient, long term management approach, values which are fundamental to Mercia’s investment ethos.

This fund, which is led by Wayne Thomas, will make investments of up to £10.0million in established and ambitious SMEs, looking to grow, with a focus on management buyouts and replacement capital.

If you would like to know more about the Fund then please get in touch with Wayne on 0161 838 5200.
