Teathers Financial PLC is focused primarily on the investment in AIM or unquoted companies, joint ventures or individual projects.  The Company is led by highly experienced individuals with proven track records in the growth company arena.  It considers all sectors but is looking for stand out companies, which it believes it can also add value to. 


Amongst other investments, the Company has a 100% interest in Teathers Financial Software Ltd, which is looking to revolutionise the crowd equity arena for listed companies and empower private investors.  In essence it has developed proprietary technology to provide brokers and fundraisers with a secure, seamless and innovative platform to connect, offer and manage private investors in Placings and IPOs, crucially on the same terms as institutional investors.  The software, which runs across all major mobile platforms, also encourages ongoing user engagement by providing a real-time gateway for private investors and continual information on their portfolios.  FCA regulated Shard Capital have adopted the technology for the Teathers App to drive private investors to their fundraising initiatives.  The technology is available to be white-labelled to brokers and fundraisers who want to engage further with private individuals who potentially represent a supportive pool of capital.
