Mercia Fund Management appoints Sales and Investor Relations Manager – Talon Golding

Henley-in-Arden, UK, 21 October 2013. Venture capital fund manager Mercia Fund Management (MFM) today announced the appointment of Talon Golding to head up Sales and Investor Relations. Talon is tasked with driving the continued growth of funds under management whilst strengthening relationships with the increasing number of investors and their advisors.

Talon Golding brings a wealth of experience across the tax efficient investment market at both client and provider level, yielding insight into the challenges and obstacles faced by advisors in the current climate in addition to hands on expertise in enhancing the client proposition. Prior to joining MFM, Talon was Sales Manager at Scion Investment Group, successfully leading the asset raising for their tax efficient investment offering, and preceding that a broker with Welbeck Wealth Management working directly with HNWs.

Talon commented on his new role: “It’s a privilege to join the growing team at Mercia Fund Management. The strength of their cumulative experience combined with superior deal flow and a truly client centric investment process, makes the MFM proposition highly attractive for investors and advisors alike.”

The new appointment is part of MFM’s on-going expansion, with former SEGA CEO Mike Hayes recently joining to head up the VC fund manager’s new Digital and E-commerce division.

Managing Director of Mercia Fund Management, Mark Payton concluded: “Talon’s appointment into a growing team is a positive reflection of our successful portfolio of funds under management. He will ensure that our investors and advisors benefit from timely and continuous investor communications.”

To meet its ever growing, robust deal flow and as one of the most active fund managers in the country, Mercia Fund Management offers a suite of funds for institutional investors and, separately, for those private investors (and their advisors) seeking tax efficient vehicles to benefit from such legitimate reliefs as those associated with Seed EIS (SEIS) and EIS.
