Paul qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PWC in the 1980s and has spent over 25 years working in the private equity market.
His early career saw Paul working with such established players as Bridgepoint and Royal Bank Private Equity. He then ran the family office for a highly successful entrepreneur for over 5 years where he managed a £30m dedicated private equity fund.
Since 2002 he has been an active private investor backing his own judgement and investing personally in over 30 businesses.
Paul established Fresh Equity in 2009 and describes the story:
“I saw a gap in the funding market for deals that required £500,000 to £5m of equity funding and have sought to fill that with an offering that I think offers SMEs a solution that not only brings money, but also experience and expertise, in a way that is flexible and suited to their needs.”
“I like to think that we offer a fresh approach to equity funding!”
