Foresight Group

Houses of the Year - VCT Winners

Foresight has been managing funds on behalf of retail and institutional investors for over 30 years, with £1.9bn in assets under management, across more than 25 funds including 10 institutional funds and numerous retail funds. The firm was particularly busy over the judging period: between July 2015 and June 2016, Foresight made 11 new investments and nine full or partial realisations, with the average return on realisations in the portfolio during 2015 standing at 3.7x. In addition, in December 2015 Foresight launched a second regional growth vehicle, the £38m Foresight Regional Investment Fund. Consistent with Foresight’s Private Equity strategy, the fund will invest up to £5m of equity in established, profitable SMEs with strong management teams based in the North West of England, North East Wales and South Yorkshire.

Judges said: Foresight really impressed the judges this year with their sustained work rate and strong returns
