Proactive specialist asset management
We provide venture, private equity or debt finance to regional businesses with growth ambition.
People remain our greatest asset. It is our colleagues that chart the course of Mercia’s success guided by the values that they embrace and their exceptional capabilities.
Our vision is to be the first choice for our investors, investees and of course our employeesMark Payton, CEO of Mercia
We are building a culture where your professional and personal growth is as important as Mercia’s growth. All are built on the foundation of our values that we live every day.
In order to make the most of everyone’s talents and maximise economic growth it is important that opportunities to start and grow businesses in the UK are open to everyone. Business creation and growth can increase levels of employment, increase productivity, grow the UK economy, and improve standards of living.
Therefore, Mercia is delighted to be supporting the ‘Investing in Women’s Code’, committed to sending a positive signal to female entrepreneurs who are looking for funding, support, resources and access to investment to build and grow their ambitious businesses.
#OneMercia is a collective that we have defined together. Mercia’s culture of cooperation is shaped by our values that support our every decision, underpins each deal and helps to build the businesses that we invest in.
Our togetherness is reflected in the strong relationships that we develop both internally and externally, in the way we strive to share continual improvements and development through knowledge sharing, growth initiatives and outreach programmes, and the care we offer to our colleagues, customers and communities.
Empowering people within business to act for the causes that matter to them, combined with the ‘can-do’ attitude that exists among colleagues, is why we embrace Mercia Spirit.
Monies raised as a result of half-marathons run, mountains climbed, hikes mistakenly taken, quizzes hotly contested, horse races with dubious spread bets and the expert craftmanship of one colleague who made a range of carved and handcrafted wooden items all support Cancer Research UK.
The Skills Builder Partnership was another important initiative that colleagues were keen to support, designed to help students build key skills and get better prepared to enter the workplace.
Mercia has a history of making a difference to the regions and within our communities.
That is as much a representation of our core values, which focus on generating long-term growth and a positive social impact, as it is a financial return motivation.
O2 is a working group of engaged colleagues that supports improved business processes and offers a broader range of insights to Mercia’s senior leadership team.
Critical to the sustained success of Mercia, this group offers the benefits of its diverse opinions, ideas and points of views that might sometimes be lost in a more hierarchically business.
We have a range of great webinars, events and news that you won’t want to miss. What better way to stay in touch than signing up for our newsletters.
