UK Alternatives platform, CoInvestor Limited (“CoInvestor”) now provides investors with unique access to high-growth venture capital funds by reducing the minimum investment amount required. Ordinarily, such funds are available to investors with an investment minimum of approximately £500,000 to £5 million. The CoInvestor aggregator solution enables investment with as little as £25,000 or 10% of the standard fund minimum.
Despite the COVID-19 crisis, European Venture Capital valuations have powered on across the financial stages. According to Pitchbook, average pre-money valuations reached an all-time high for both early-stage and late-stage venture investments in 2020. And both established Venture Capital firms and non-traditional investors remain optimistic.
CoInvestor is launching their Venture Capital funds offering with select opportunities from three managers, that have an investment focus spanning deep tech to psychedelic medicine. These new funds will not only benefit investors on the CoInvestor platform looking to diversify their portfolio but will provide fund managers with a new distribution route for any prospects currently unable to meet their standard minimum.
Chris Sandfield, CoInvestor’s CEO commented “I am excited to be able to deliver a solution for investors to invest alongside the smartest venture managers and institutional investors in the industry. We are building a digital marketplace with innovative technology and compelling alternative investment products. The launch of these venture capital funds with our unique aggregator solution is a significant step forward in providing investors the best tools to build a diversified portfolio of alternative investments; simply, securely, and all in one place.”
The venture capital funds will sit alongside a range of 50+ EIS fund and single company investment opportunities from leading UK fund managers. Previews of all these alternatives products can be found at coinvestor.co.uk. To review the complete listing and access supporting documents, investors need to complete a short registration process.
