Founded in 2007, by Sam Smith, finnCap is a leading adviser and broker to ambitious growth companies. In a similar way to Dragons Den companies come and tell us their story, what their business is about and what it is selling. We then decide how good the idea is and whether we can tell a bigger and better story to other people (shareholders) to excite them about investing money into the company which will then enable it to grow faster, be more successful and hopefully make more money.
Sam started her career in 1998 in the City after qualifying as a chartered accountant with KPMG. She is the only female chief executive of a City broker and under her leadership finnCap is one of the leading and fastest-growing independent brokers in the City.
