Why we're different

We are a highly energetic, hands-on firm with a strong track record and passion for working with ambitious founders, entrepreneurs and management teams to realise the potential of their businesses.

Our success is built on our extensive networks in the UK’s early stage and mid-market business community; our experience of operating seamlessly across public and private markets; and our ability to access capital from a deep and broad pool of high-quality investors.

We set ourselves apart from other public market institutional stockbrokers and private market capital focused advisers. We take pride in developing long term relationships with our clients by learning about their companies, working with their people and delivering results.

"Innovation continues to be alive and kicking in the UK... A huge thank you to Zeus for their efforts in securing a great deal for the business and for the new investors, without their relentless efforts we would not have successfully navigated the whole IPO process."

Chris Greenwood, CEO of Tan Delta
