Maven invests £4m in London-based RegTech specialist

Maven Capital Partners (“Maven”), one of the UK’s most active investors, has announced today that the Maven VCTs have committed £4m of investment to Novatus Advisory Limited (“Novatus”).

Andrew Hedley, Partner and co-founder of Novatus said: “We are incredibly excited to partner with Maven to continue the company’s rapid growth. From an advisory perspective, these funds will be used to grow the business at scale to ensure we continue providing our existing and new clients with the highest levels of service across our core offerings within compliance, ESG and risk.”

London headquartered Novatus provides specialized advice to financial services firms to support them in complying with their regulatory obligations, including risk, compliance and ESG programmes.

The funding from Maven will be used by Novatus to invest further in its team of leading technical advisors, while expanding its sales and marketing resources to support the growth of its RegTech offering. The funding will also support ongoing investment in its TRA tool as the company targets further penetration of the market to help deliver on its ambitious plans.

The business operates in a growing market with clear and compelling growth drivers as financial services organizations are subject to ever increasing and more complex regulatory obligations. The demand for Novatus’s services has grown year-on-year and there is significant bandwidth to grow further within a global market estimated to be worth £18.8bn per annum.

Alan Robertson, Investment Director at Maven, said: “Novatus represents an excellent opportunity for the Maven VCTs to invest in a profitable business that has delivered impressive year-on-year growth and with a demonstrable track record of supporting leading financial service firms.

“We can see the significant value that its tech solution offers to clients. Its advisory and consultancy services are already highly rated and trusted by its client base and the Maven investment will provide the resource Novatus needs to continue to provide its high level of service while pursuing sales growth, alongside the continued development of its complementary technology platform.”
