Klarissa and Josh have joined as investment associates to support the local investment team working with high growth businesses to offer finance to businesses through NPIF - Maven Equity Finance, across our North West office network in Preston, Burnley, Manchester, Liverpool and Southport.

Klarissa is an economics and management graduate, specialising in strategic finance with a background in sustainability and sustainable investment. Prior to joining Maven she worked with the ImpactVest team as project lead, and a research analyst at Capitol in sustainable investment. Josh is a graduate with a master’s in financial and computational mathematics from the University of Nottingham. 

These appointments follow a busy time for our North West office with the recent appointments of James Caplan and Tom Parton as Investment Managers to work with high growth businesses that are seeking capital to develop strategic plans in Cumbria and Lancashire respectively. 

As part of our expansion in the region we have launched our latest series of live investment clinics. The 1-2-1 sessions enable companies to identify the most suitable type of finance to meet their funding needs. Run by our local team, who have two dedicated Investment Managers for each sub-region they operate in, the clinics will be held across Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Liverpool City Region.

“We are delighted to welcome Klarissa and Josh as we further strengthen our presence across the Northern Powerhouse region. We understand the importance of proactive localised support and we have invested in the resource to make sure we can spend time with ambitious management teams and deliver tailored funding support to businesses in the region."

Ryan Bevington, Fund Manager, NPIF North West Equity Fund at Maven 

“Klarissa and Josh’s appointment is a clear sign that talent can be retained in the North and that the business landscape is full of opportunities for young and upcoming investment professionals. The 1-2-1 investment clinics will help companies understand how they can best access funds and the new appointees will provide an invaluable perspective on how business can take the next steps in their growth journeys.”

Sean Hutchinson, Senior Manager at the British Business Bank
