Service aids green investment


City nancier AngelBourse last month teamed up with The Environmental Industries Commission (EIC) to launch a new service, Gateway to Global Investors, to give UK environmental companies access to investors worldwide.

The EIC said the UK's environmental industry was emerging as a major player in the global environmental market, predicted to be worth $700bn (£385bn) by 2010, and nance would be a 'growth requirement'.

The service aims to fill a perceived investment gap and offer an incentive to environmental technology companies by creating a network that can access sources of nance from investors and hedge funds.

AngelBourse will assist negotiations on terms for investment and work with the companies in completing proposed transactions and the selection of a nomad, broker or accountant.

'We provide investors access to ambitious, early stage companies with high growth potential. This is a unique service for the UK's environmental industry, ' said AngelBourse CEO Guy Saxton.

EIC executive chairman Adrian Wilkes added: 'This is a vital new service for the UK's environmental industry which will help small and medium sized enterprises seize the huge new opportunities in the fast-growing worldwide environmental markets.'
