    Much has been written about the lack of long-term patient capital in support of British based businesses. Indeed the “Macmillan Gap” as it became known had it roots in the Great Depression of 1929 and was later to spawn the Industrial and Commercial Finance Corporation and various other government-led initiatives including more recently, the British Business Bank.

    The Seismic Succession Fund.

    A fresh alternative for business owners
    looking to exit or retire.

    • Designed for British based engineering and manufacturing companies
    • Keeps the ‘name above the door’
    • ‘Hands-on’ approach to funding and growing the business
    • Supporting incumbent teams and developing the next generation of engineers

    Finally, an alternative to the traditional routes
    of private equity, trade sale or the capital markets.

    If you are a business owner and keen to understand the succession opportunities available, or would be interested in investing to support British manufacturing, please contact us below:

    What we invest in:

    Whilst Seismic is a generalist investor it takes a thematic approach
    to identifying, targeting and sorting investee companies.

    The common themes are:

    • A desire on the part of the owner(s) to support the incumbent management team.
    • A desire on the part of the current business owner(s) to keep the ‘name above the door’.
    • Revenue generating and profitable.
    • UK based businesses.
    • Strong market dynamics with an identifiable ‘niche’ position.
    • Supporting the trend to 're-shore' / 'on-shore' production to the UK.
    • Supporting customer requirements to reduce the time taken from 'prototype to production'.


    Investing in early-stage companies involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Seismic's offerings are targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own investment decisions.
