Following our last article about defensive investing strategies, we take a more in-depth look at why litigation funding is such a good option in today’s unstable climate. Access to justice for all 2018 saw litigation…
We founded Seismic to fundraise for entrepreneur led growth companies and venture opportunities. Since then, we have built on our Venture background to include Investment into Asset Backed companies and Income focussed financial products. As a regulated Alternative Investment Fund Manager we have structured a series of AIFs, PLCs and single companies to provide a suite of investment opportunities for our network.
Entrepreneurs come to Seismic for supportive and no-nonsense support and advice on growing or launching their companies. Investors come to us to invest in UK businesses and as part of a their investment strategy, we service the needs of Professional Clients and Retail Investors in an active and managed network.
I am an experienced Board Director and Investment Director, specialising in SME's, as well as operating as a strategic advisor to a number of AIF funds. My passion for SME's has led me to launch a number of businesses, all the while, utilising my corporate finance experience in their development. In 2008 I completed an MBA, which followed over 10 years in blue chip city-based financial institutions most recently with Goldman Sachs. Since this time and before forming Seismic, I have been a Board advisor and Director to businesses ranging from mid-cap PE backed businesses and SME's as well as start-ups and not-for-profit organisations.
I work with early-stage companies to help them achieve growth, and with our investor network to find the right investments for them. Prior to founding Seismic, I got my boots dirty delivering infrastructure as an engineer, then project finance specialist and business manager.
As a Fund Manager, I have maintained a successful record in the investment of shareholder equity into growing start-ups. As an Investor Director I maintain proximity to each of our exciting companies, actively supporting entrepreneurs and investing alongside our investors.

Investing in early-stage companies involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Seismic's offerings are targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own investment decisions.
