Working independently, Kirsty Acton has a variable and exciting workload. ‘My clients require private equity investment opportunities or are looking for financing, be it for funds or business,’ she says. A particular advantage is that ‘I can work for the best upcoming teams and businesses and cherry-pick who I work with’. She explains: ‘Growth equity within a balanced portfolio of companies can still act as preservation capital, but as a rule of thumb, private equity is long term, higher risk, with greater reward.’ One highlight has been working with at the London HQ of a big data tech business, which is currently securing £7 million growth equity and is now ready to compete in the US.
