  • Coutts Investment Club

    Company investments to complement your wider portfolio.

    A direct investment in a private company could represent a strategic investment solution to complement your wider portfolio. Suitable for experienced investors with a higher appetite for risk, the Coutts Investment Club (previously known as the Coutts Investment Opportunity Service) is a non-advised and introduction-only service.

    The Coutts Investment Club was established to connect capital – making the powerful link between high growth businesses and Coutts exclusive investment club. 

    Our highly experienced team is dedicated to sourcing relevant and proprietary deals for our clients, drawing on our extensive network of clients and intermediaries, lawyers and other professionals. Once our team identifies a proposition, they will share the details with you so that you can decide whether it meets your needs. If it is an opportunity that interests you, we will arrange for you to meet with the company concerned. You can then make an informed and independent decision about whether to invest.

    The Fund invests in innovative businesses which have been carefully selected from within the ‘growth economy’. These companies are spread across the country, operating in a wide range of sectors critical to achieving the UK's economic priorities. One thing they have in common is that on average their revenues have grown at twice the pace of UK GDP in recent years.
