Kuber Ventures, an alternative fund investment platform offering access to EIS/SEIS portfolios and funds, has added Tim Thornton, Matt Lenzie, and Kate Hopkin to its team.
All three hires are newly created roles as a result of the continued growth across the business and geographic regions.
Hopkin’s role as business development associate is key to providing support to the business development managers increasing Kuber’s geographical distribution footprint. Prior to joining Kuber Hopkin worked at Brooks MacDonald and Fidelity International.
Lenzie and Thornton also work to increase Kuber’s distribution capabilities and geographical coverage. Both have been bought in because of their expertise in the EIS/BPR/SEIS and tax incentivised investing market.
Lenzie has been brought in to increase Kuber Venture’s coverage across London and the South East, while Thornton being based in Leeds will capitalise on an area which Kuber see as a strategic priority for investors looking at the EIS space.
Prior to joining Kuber, Lenzie worked as head of sales for enterprise investments and head of investor relations for Angels Den, an investor platform. Thornton has considerable expertise gained at Blackfinch Investments and in previous roles in the North of England.
Piers Denne, head of sales, says: “As Kuber increases its market footprint, it is crucial to have the right team to support the advisers working with Kuber. The hire of three new people with experience in the EIS/SEIS and BPR market is testament to the rapid growth Kuber is experiencing.
“Tim and Matt both come with exceptional track records in tax incentivised investing. Kate's history of client services with Fidelity international and Brooks MacDonald makes her an ideal candidate to support the business development managers and their adviser clients.”
