Puma Investments shortlisted for five Growth Investor Awards

We are delighted to announce that Puma Investments has been shortlisted for five Growth Investor Awards, hosted by Intelligent Partnership. We are finalists in the following categories:


  • Growth Investor of the Year
  • Most Valuable Player 
  • Best BR Investment Manager - Listed
  • Best BR Investment Manager - Unlisted
  • Best VCT Investment Manager


The Growth Investor of the Year award is described as the highest accolade for investment providers. It recognises outstanding investment managers for performance, product and service developments, and true ‘impact beyond investment’ on customers and the wider business community.


Karen Sullivan, our Head of Strategic Partnerships, has been nominated for the Most Valuable Player award. This award recognises a member of the Puma Investments team that the organisation believes has gone above and beyond with their efforts to support clients, colleagues or portfolios through this year.


Meanwhile, the Best VCT Investment Manager award highlights leading investment managers who specialise in Venture Capital Trusts. We are also shortlisted for Best BR Investment Manager – Listed, which is open to leading investment managers specialising in AIM investments, and Best BR Investment Manager – Unlisted, which spotlights leading investment managers specialising in non-AIM-based investments qualifying for Business Relief. 


In addition, the Puma Property Finance division of Puma Investments has been nominated for Team of the Year, which is open to teams working within the growth investment community who have delivered exceptional results.


Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership commented:


“The Growth Investor Awards measure the impact of talent, technology and innovative thinking within Britain’s thriving smaller-company ecosystem. We want to honour all those industry leaders who day-in, day-out display the ability, bravery and commitment needed to back entrepreneurs and help drive Britain’s economic growth from the bottom up.”


We look forward to finding out the results in December 2020!
