• Competing with 7 other investment providers for the coveted Best BR Investment Manager – Unlisted Award
  • Now in its seventh year, the Growth Investor Awards will be announced during a live in-person ceremony in November

In another challenging year, and with another record-breaking number of award entries, Ingenious has secured a spot as one of the finalists in the Best BR Investment Manager – Unlisted category of the 2021 Growth Investor Awards, hosted by Intelligent Partnership. Now in their seventh year, the Growth Investor Awards are a key event in the investment industry calendar. The awards celebrate the companies and individuals who go above and beyond to support the UK’s growing businesses, and in doing so create jobs, boost economic growth and support innovation.

About the award

Sponsored by Exact Libris, The Best BR Investment Manager – Unlisted award is open to leading investment managers specialising in non-Aim-based investments qualifying for Business Property Relief. Ingenious will compete for the award alongside seven other impressive finalists: Blackfinch Investments, Foresight Group, Octopus Investments, Puma Investments, Seneca Partners, TIME Investments & Triple Point.

This year the Growth Investor Awards are being brought back as a live and in-person black-tie awards ceremony at the prestigious London Hilton Park Lane. Taking place on the evening of Thursday November 4, 2021, the awards present an ideal opportunity to catch up with old contacts, make new ones, and acknowledge the ongoing excellence and resilience of the industry at one of the most important moments in its history.

We are very proud to be recognised for our performance and achievements over the last 12 months and listed as finalists in the category of Best Unlisted BR. The Growth Investor Awards celebrate companies that go above and beyond to support investors and the UK’s growing businesses and we’re delighted to be nominated yet again.

Simon Harryman

Senior Business Development Director, Ingenious

We’re thrilled to be able to once again welcome our finalists in person to thank them for their drive and commitment in the last year. Without the work of the growth investment community, many more companies would have succumbed to the ongoing lockdowns or been unable to engage with the opportunities they have presented.

This industry is right at the heart of the UK’s investment-led recovery and helping the country to develop world-beating businesses, with explosive short-term growth and exciting long-term prospects in the post-Brexit context. The agility and expertise of our growth investors are invaluable assets to our SMEs and we’re proud of the part they play in unlocking the success that facilitates the jobs and prosperity that is so important to the wider economy. What better reason to dress up and congratulate such worthy nominees. I think they’re all champions and applaud each and every one, but you can be sure that the winners will be the best of the best.

This year we’ve seen some very competitive categories and I’m pleased to say that includes our brand new ESG Champion of the Year award and at a time of continuing uncertainty, I couldn’t be more impressed by the quality and breadth of what this industry offers to both investors and investees.

Ingenious deserves hearty congratulations for rising to the top of a very competitive category.

Guy Tolhurst

Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership
