Albion Capital Group LLP

Finance Manager

Albion Capital is one of the largest venture capital firms in the UK with £1bn currently under management. I held various roles over the seven years, where my most recent role was as a Finance Manager for two PLC venture funds, where I was responsible for the management accounts, statutory accounts, budgets and forecasts, loan stock models, company secretarial, tax returns and presenting the financial results to the various boards, whilst completing my ACA. I met a number of entrepreneurs, investors and was apart of investee board meetings and pitching meetings, which gave me a thorough understanding of the venture capital world.
