we are a private equity team with a

passion for helping companies grow

About us

Percipient Capital is a leading independent provider of private equity and venture capital to small and medium sized businesses. Our focus is two-fold: helping entrepreneurs to grow their existing businesses and backing management teams to buy the businesses they run, but do not own.

We have substantial funds under management, looking after funds on behalf of high net worth individuals, family offices and institutional investors such as Barclays Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, GE Commercial Finance and the UK Government.

We strive to build shareholder value for the mutual benefit of the teams we back and the investors who back us. Over the last 15 years the team have supported more than 45 companies to fulfil their ambitions.


Percipient is owned and managed by a small, highly motivated team. This means you always deal direct with a decision maker and gives us an intimate understanding of the businesses we back and the investors that trust us with their money.


We personally invest in every single business we back. Our business model is simple we charge our investors based on success. That means we are completely aligned with both the companies we back and the investors who back us.


Our business has been built through a combination of repeat business and personal recommendation from the people that know us best – those we have backed or worked with before. We are always happy to be referenced.


We know the value of straight talking. Whether working with our portfolio companies, updating our investors or giving feedback to a new management team, our approach is always one of openess, transparency and frankness.

Our team brings together a unique mix of investment and entrepreneurial skills
