Quotes

..." Simon Rogerson, CEO, Octopus Investments, added: "Dragonfly Property Finance is one of the biggest forces within alternative finance and the fact that it has now hit £1billion of lending drives home why."
He says: "Because VCTs invest in a broad portfolio of companies, sometimes as many as 50, the investment risk is broadly spread. Generally, performance of the more mature VCTs is positive, with the average of those older than 15 years approaching that of the FTSE All-Share index."
Simon Andrews, a member of the ventures team at Octopus, says: "Swoon Editions co-founders Brian and Debbie have built a model that puts customers at the heart of their business. Critically they have done this with sound economic principles and are executing at pace. This additional investment will enable them to really kick on from the great year they have just had."
Commenting on the deal, Harrison says, "In the past year we have tested every aspect of our business model, rapidly growing our base of suppliers, designers, customers and industry style watchers."
