About Gresham House

Gresham House is a London Stock Exchange quoted specialist alternative asset manager offering funds, direct investment and tailored investment solutions, including co-investment, across five highly differentiated alternative investment strategies.

Incorporated in 1857, Gresham House is one of the oldest companies in London still operating today. In December 2014, a new management team set out to transform the former property focused investment trust into a specialist asset management business. The vision was to build a business whereby the Group would become an ‘asset to covet’, generating shareholder value through delivering sustainable and superior investment performance, quality service provision alongside non-financial returns. To create a culture of empowerment, in which individual flair and entrepreneurial thinking is encouraged.

From a standing start in December 2014, through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth, the team has significantly grown the Gresham House business; assets under management now exceed £2.1 billion, providing a strong and scalable platform from which to continue to grow.

In May 2018 the Group acquired 100% of FIM Services Limited (FIM), an alternative investment fund manager specialising in UK sustainable forestry and UK renewable energy investments, in a deal which combines two leading UK forestry and renewable energy investment managers, looking to leverage the synergies across both businesses including broadening and strengthening the client base.

Gresham House plc acquired the funds and investment management businesses of Livingbridge VC LLP on 30 November 2018. The acquisition included the two open ended investment companies; LF Livingbridge UK Micro Cap Fund and LF Livingbridge UK Multi Cap Income Fund, which have since been renamed LF Gresham House UK Micro Cap Fund and LF Gresham House UK Multi Cap Income Fund respectively. The deal also included the two Baronsmead Venture Capital Trusts.
