Augmentum Investing in Fast Growinf FintechBusinesses

We invest in...

Exceptional, fast growing UK and wider European fintech businesses at Series A and beyond. We invest in ambitious and extraordinary entrepreneurs who we believe have the potential to become leaders in their industry.

To never compromise on the quality of our investments. As the UK’s only publicly listed fintech fund we have a unique flexibility to be opportunistic in our investments and invest for the long term, unrestrained by conventional fund dynamics.

Our partnering style is…

To be actively involved with our portfolio companies without getting in the way of our management teams. We focus on the important issues, and try to help our management teams do the same and not get distracted by details.
