About the award

The Growth Investor of the Year is our highest accolade for investment providers, this award recognises outstanding investment managers demonstrating the best investment performance, the best product and service developments, and the best ‘impact beyond investment’ on customers and the wider business community. To get to the final itself is an achievement, but Forward Partners will compete for the top award alongside five other impressive finalists: 

  • Foresight Group
  • Fuel Ventures
  • MMC Ventures
  • Par Equity
  • Puma Investments

Commenting on the announcement, Nic Brisbourne, CEO and Managing Partner at Forward Partners, said:

We’re thrilled to be shortlisted for ‘The Growth Investor of the Year’ at the Growth Investor Awards 2022. Forward listed on the London Stock Exchange in July 2021, so to have our efforts over the last 12 months recognised as a finalist is fantastic and a true testament to our team’s hard work. It’s also wonderful to see so many of our peers being recognised for their contributions to our ecosystem and the wider UK startup sector.

That’s why we wanted to expand the Growth Investor Awards this year, ensuring that there is even more opportunity to get the recognition they deserve. Our categories are always competitive, but this year has exceeded all expectations. Forward Partners deserves huge congratulations for even making it into the final of Growth Investor of the Year, because I know how stiff the competition was.”
