This is Money wrote about Augmentum Fintech’s approach and expected level of success:

“The fund invests savers’ money in a variety of fast-growing, privately owned financial technology businesses.

What does the manager invest in?

Tim Levene [and the Augmentum team] searches through hundreds of companies to find the winners and disruptors. The portfolio is made up of 15 companies, with some well-known names like Interactive Investor, Seedrs and Zopa.
