Yorkshire equity firm expands UK reach with new Thames Valley office
A Yorkshire private equity house has announced that it is expanding its presence across the UK with a new Thames Valley office.
YFM Equity Partners (YFM), is opening up a new office at Fora in Thames Tower, housing a four-strong team who live in the region.
The company currently has offices in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, with the new Thames Valley base becoming its fifth office.
David Wrench, partner at YFM, commented: “We are a ‘people’ business first and foremost, and we’ve chosen a location to enable us to be accessible to our various stakeholders.
“As a firm, the YFM team spends a great deal of time working closely with our investment businesses both before and after we invest, so having a proper full time office in this key region for us makes a lot of sense,”
Jamie Roberts, partner and head of new investments in the South, added: “The new office is a further demonstration of our ongoing commitment to working with businesses in the Thames Valley and across the South West.
“We have long recognised the area’s distinct identity and believe that by establishing a physical base here, we will be able to form stronger links with other professional advisers and business leaders, enabling us to make more investments in the region as well as supporting those already in the portfolio.
“As innovative companies look for new opportunities in the current fast-changing environment, we continue to be committed to building out our national presence and supporting businesses and their advisers locally as we grow our own business.”
