Achieving accelerated growth post COVID-19
Ralph Singleton - head of the funds at The FSE in Cornwall, will be speaking with Kim Conchie. Kim will be asking Ralph key questions that we will all be wanting to know about how we can get business back on track post Covid-19. Looking at the immediate impacts of the crisis and the concerns for business resilience moving forwards. The biggest question will be "what USP’s are you seeing in the Cornish economy that gives confidence for the future?"
Ralph has nearly 40 years experience in analysing & investing in small companies both in the quoted and unquoted arena.
As a founder of Rowan Dartington, he was part of a team which in the early days were the leading advisor on AIM and responsible for numerous AIM IPOs.
He has successfully managed equity funds which have outperformed their benchmarks by 4-5 % each year in the UK and European Smallcap markets. This experience has been invaluable when investing in early stage growth companies for FSE and CIOSIF.
Finding and qualifying small high quality businesses and then helping them grow through advice or introduction to key appointments, has been a key driver to delivering the fund which has also been successful in providing additional leverage funding from external investors. This will be a key factor behind the longer term development of the portfolio companies.
