Chris Griffiths

New Investments Fund Manager

Chris manages a team of Investment Executives based throughout Wales and has worked with businesses in a wide range of sectors and particularly manufacturing and technology.

He joined Finance Wales as a portfolio manager in 2003 before focusing on new investments in 2007.  A development capital and succession specialist, he structures some of Finance Wales’ larger and more complex deals, drawing on a wealth of SME investment and consultancy experience to identify robust, commercially viable investment opportunities. 

Qualifying as a chartered accountant with Coopers & Lybrand, Chris spent three years in transaction services, working with blue chips including Consignia, Rank Hovis MacDougall, Orange and Doughty Hanson before moving into business consultancy.

Venture capital-funded businesses achieve on average 30% higher growth than those funded by other sources of finance. Investments structured with equity can free up vital cash-flow and allow businesses to create long-term shareholder value.
