Former directors of Octopus Ventures have formed financial services firm Allium Capital.
 
Allium says it will work with retained clients to offer skills in structuring, advising and launching the ‘next generation’ of investment companies to the UK market.

The company is already in advanced stages of negotiations with a number of financial services companies to help them leverage their ongoing relationships with clients.

The Allium Capital proposition has been created to help its partners build a more robust business model that offers greater flexibility, transparency and profitability. In addition, the way Allium structures next generation investment companies allows fund managers to tap into new distribution models. 

Ronan Kearney, managing director of Allium Capital, says: ‘We are very excited by the challenge ahead of us and what we aim to achieve.  We looked at the traditional way investment companies are structured and how we could re-structure operating models to enhance value for stakeholders.  We will work with partners to ensure the right structures are in place for new fund management companies to perform.  We are keenly aware that at the end of the day the money belongs to investors and we are here to ensure we drive value for both distributors and their clients.

Prior to launching Allium Capital, the founders worked together at Octopus Investments and have previously all held senior positions within fund management, stock broking, and distribution companies.

Allium Capital Ltd partners with and assists companies including Dexion Capital, Openwork, Foster Denovo, IFDS Managers, JP Morgan, Clarkson Hill Group, Simply Biz, Praemium and Memery Crystal.
