We want our investors to be fully aware of the downsides of equity investing as well as the potential benefits. It's therefore important to realise that investing in small companies always carries risks, including the loss of capital, illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends and share dilution. Equity investments should still be made as part of a diversified portfolio. Read our full Risk Warning

We seem to be plagued by a fundamental misunderstanding when it comes to Fintech. Numerous reports on its growth lump all the various elements together. It’s about as useful as telling a farmer people are eating much more. He wants to know what they are eating.

Very few facts are known about what Brexit will really mean and what the real effects of withdrawing from the EU will be on the UK tech start up scene. Or at least that was so until recently. Actions taken by the EIF (European Investment Fund) in the last month show that it has essentially ceased taking applications from the UK. This is a massive blow to what has been a UK success story – the UK tech start up hubs. Not only the EIF but it also appears that EIB may well follow suit. This will all depend on the outcome of those negotiations. However, as we head to the polls to vote for the inevitable Tory Government (per the polls at time of writing – usual health warnings apply), signals from May’s team are getting increasingly belligerent; a little like her necklaces. A very hard Brexit, or no deal at all, seems increasingly possible.

For me, due diligence is not just a fact checking exercise. It includes an analysis of the sector in which the company operates, the team behind the company and the way they portray themselves. It isn’t a science though. Judgements have to be made and the only way to try and ensure that they are well-founded is to access as much information as possible and to rely on your analysis. This post will look at the potential pitfalls as well as the key indicators of a competent team building a company with potential. It will attempt to offer some guidance in enabling you to be as best-positioned as you can be in making an investment decision.

The art of good diligence is an essential part of any small company investor’s armoury. We might argue that is the most important if you allow the term to cover the breadth of checks that a professional investment manager will carry out. Gone are the days when due diligence covered basic checks on a company structure, its share classes, debts and management team. Investment managers are now looking at a more holistic approach.
