Symvan Capital Best SEIS Investment Manager | Growth Investor Awards 2018

Roger Blears, a Senior Partner at RW Blears, presented the 2018 Best SEIS Investment Manager award sponsored by RW Blears Solicitors to Symvan Capital.

Symvan Capital has beaten off strong competition in the head-to-head race for the title of the Best SEIS Investment Manager at the fourth annual Growth Investor Awards, organised by Intelligent Partnership.

Sponsored by RW Blears Solicitors, the award was presented on November 7 at a black-tie gala dinner for over 450 leading lights from the UK’s vibrant SME investment community.

Commenting on the victory, Nicholas Nicolaides said: “We’re thrilled to have won this award in recognition of the hard work the Symvan team has put in during the last year. As Symvan enters its sixth year since launch, we have witnessed our initial SEIS investments scale and progress, whilst also benefiting from follow-on growth capital from our EIS fund.”

Symvan won considerable praise and plaudits for its excellent engagement with the industry

and its great platform for outreach to potential Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)


The accolade recognises providers specialising in Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes. The judges specifically looked for investment volume, performance, impact on investee companies, quality of adviser outreach and innovation in product development.

Guy Tolhurst, managing director of Intelligent Partnership, commented on the result:

“Symvan has displayed very proactive engagement across the industry, with HM Treasury and the EIS Association in particular. It’s also really great to see the team’s considerable commitment to helping investee companies realise their potential to the fullest.”
