Portfolio Executive Raymond Walters manages a portfolio of debt investments in established Welsh SMEs. A follow-on specialist, he forges close links with SME management teams to ensure they benefit from Finance Wales’ expertise as well as its investment.

Raymond strives to build strong relationships with the management teams in his portfolio. He combines a pragmatic approach with thirty years’ banking and finance experience to structure effective follow-on investments for businesses in his portfolio.
