Members are like-minded investors who believe that by pooling their collective business experience and contacts, they can accelerate the growth of the businesses in which they jointly invest.
WestBridge100 gives members the opportunity to invest in institutional grade deals either in an individual company in parallel with funds being managed by WestBridge Capital or in a range of companies via our funds.
We seek to secure, where possible, EIS relief for individual company investments.
Fund investments are made alongside our partners through a tax efficient 'feeder fund' that is managed by Saltus Partners LLP, a UK based and FSA regulated private wealth management company. Individuals investing via our 'feeder fund' typically invest a minimum of £100,000, drawn down in four equal installments. This gives them access to the private equity investment asset class without having to meet the high entry requirements of a traditional fund. An investment in the 'feeder fund' may be made via a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).
As well as receiving regular presentations about the progress of portfolio companies, our partners actively engage with them to identify investment opportunities and introduce contacts to assist growth. Members are considered for non-executive roles.
