NVM Private Equity (NVM) has appointed Charles Winward to its investment team. Winward will be responsible for sourcing, transacting and managing VCT investments.

Winward was previously a director at IP Group plc, where he was the Managing Director of its fund management and advisory subsidiary. Over seven years at IP Group (during which time they moved from AIM to the FTSE 250), he assisted in creating and developing several spin-out technology companies from university intellectual property, with notable successes being Tracsis plc (University of Leeds), Xeros Technology plc (University of Leeds), Boxarr Limited (Universities of Southampton and Bristol) and hVivo plc (University of London). Additionally, Charles had responsibility for the IP Venture Fund, raising a second fund in 2012, and the North East Technology Fund.

In his earlier career, Winward was a technology strategist for JPMorgan, and an officer in the British Royal Navy. He holds an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley and a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bristol, and is a CFA Charterholder.

Martin Green, Managing Partner of NVM, says: “Charlie is a successful investment manager whose knowledge and experience in early stage companies will ensure NVM remains well positioned to deal with opportunities under the new VCT regulatory environment.”

Winward says: “I am delighted to be joining Martin and such an experienced team with a long-established, successful track record in value creation by backing promising companies across the regions of the UK and I look forward to making my first investments for NVM."
