Kuber Ventures has been shortlisted for Best Investment Platform at the 2017 Growth Investor Awards, which celebrate the role of the UK’s investment provider community in championing tax-advantaged investments, spotting growth potential and backing outstanding UK small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs).
Launched by Intelligent Partnership in 2015, the Growth Investor Awards celebrate the UK’s SME investment community’s contribution towards innovation, technology, and job and wealth creation. The awards specifically acknowledge those companies and individuals who are helping start-up and ‘scale-up’ businesses realise their full potential and power Britain’s economy.
Kuber Ventures will be competing in the Best Investment Platform alongside the following finalists: Abundance Investment, Downing Crowd, Force Over Mass, Seedrs and Syndicate Room. The winner will be announced at an exclusive black tie awards dinner, which will be held on Wednesday 8 November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, Lancaster Gate, London.
Dermot Campbell, CEO of Kuber Ventures said: ‘Since launching, Kuber has led a fundamental shift in Adviser behaviour by enabling them to incorporate a platform approach to EIS/SEIS investing, building diversified portfolios all through the use of a single application form. This has enabled Advisers to develop their financial planning propositions accordingly and whilst we welcome the growth of platforms in this sector, I’m very proud of our work. With such a strong field, I’m delighted that Kuber has been shortlisted for ‘Best Investment Platform’. It confirms our original theory and will ultimately drive greater choice for advisers and their clients alike.’
Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, said: “The Growth Investor Awards measure the impact of talent, technology and innovative thinking within Britain’s thriving smaller-company ecosystem. We want to honour all those industry leaders who day-in, day-out display the ability, bravery and commitment needed to back entrepreneurs and help drive Britain’s economic growth from the bottom up. We are delighted that the role played by Kuber Ventures has been recognised with this 2017 Growth Investor Awards shortlisting, within a fiercely contested category. I’d like to personally wish Kuber Ventures the very best of luck, and we hope to see you on the winners’ stage in November.”
