Nigel Hammond
Managing Partner

An Engineer and Chartered Accountant, Nigel's private equity experience covers more than two decades and has involved investing in companies based in many European countries facing most of the organic and acquisitive growth challenges that businesses are ever likely to encounter. From 1990 to 1995 he worked for 3i, from 1995 to 2006 for Montagu Private Equity and founded Vespa Capital in 2007.

Since 1995 he has been involved in 30 transactions that have required over £1 billion of invested capital and returned over 2.5 times money invested and an average IRR of over 35%.

Members of the management teams of almost all of the deals that Nigel was involved in at Montagu and 3i have invested in the Vespa Capital funds.

Nigel and his wife Sarah are patrons of the Prince's Trust and the NSPCC.
