                     KINGSBRIDGE HOLDINGS PLC

                   AGREEMENT WITH CLOSE BROTHERS
                                 
                                 
Kingsbridge  Holdings  ('Kingsbridge'),  announces  that  it   has
entered into an agreement with Close Brothers, a leading financial
institution,  to market on its behalf a significant proportion  of
its new tax efficient investment scheme.  In total Kingsbridge has
agreed to place with its clients up to £30 million.

Kingsbridge  will  receive  initial  commission  and   an   annual
management  charge  and will manage up to  £10  million  of  these
funds.

Charles Green, Chairman, commented:

'Following the successful flotation the management team is working
hard  to  further expand its business and this is, hopefully,  the
first  of  several  deals  that will both  enhance  the  Company's
profile  and profitability.  In the first year the agreement  with
Close  Brothers is expected to contribute approximately  £500,000.
We  have appointed the first recruit since flotation, who will  be
London  based and assist in exploiting the opportunities available
in the Capital.

'We  stated at flotation that the placing would allow us  to  take
advantage  of the opportunities available and that the recruitment
of  selected  personnel was a priority. We expect to make  further
announcements regarding expansion in due course.'
