About Pollen Street Capital

Pollen Street Capital is a private equity fund manager focussed on investing in businesses in the financial services sector. We have invested over £1.2bn in a range of businesses across all stages of development.

We seek to invest in high quality businesses operating in specialist markets. We work with entrepreneurial and driven management teams who share our values and philosophy to build businesses that deliver market-leading products and services to their customers in order to create long-term sustainable success.

We adopt a hands-on approach to develop businesses that have the ability to gain market share in markets with strong structural growth drivers. The businesses that we support must have a clear, differentiated and distinct proposition, with a strong potential to grow and gain market share during the period of the firm’s investment.

Our current portfolio includes investments in Shawbrook, the UK challenger bank, Target, the loan servicer and software provider for financial services and insurance businesses, and Freedom Finance, the UK’s largest personal loan broker.
