For over 20 years Ingenious has undertaken a wide range of equity investments encompassing:

Venture capital investments in early stage growth companies

Providing equity finance to create and operate single assets or portfolios of assets

Our equity strategies span our four core sectors.


Ingenious Media has managed a wide range of equity structures for both retail and institutional investors, having deployed over £9 billion in the sector since 1998.

Venture capital investments have been made into successful media companies such as 19 Entertainment, the creators of American Idol, Whizz Kid Productions and the live event festivals Boardmasters and Creamfields. Our founder, Patrick McKenna, was previously Chairman and CEO of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group. Together with director Duncan Reid, he was instrumental in creating global value from hits such as Phantom of the Opera, Cats and many other shows.

Although our equity strategies have spanned numerous sectors within Media,
they are currently focused on the production and global distribution of film and
television content.

Examples of our experience:


Co-investment into property developments both pre and post planning permission through to construction, optimisation and exit.

The Ingenious Real Estate team is experienced in providing equity to development opportunities as a co-investment, alongside the developer of the project, aligning interests between the two parties. Developments may be awaiting planning permission, or already have it in place.

Our extensive sector expertise enables us to identify and partner with experienced developers on projects with high buyer demand and liquidity levels.

We primarily consider build to sell and build to rent opportunities in both the residential, mixed use and industrial sectors.
