Twenty20 Capital Support

As part of an alternative investment strategy, we have contributed to a $500m funding round to support the growth of Animoca; putting the business at the forefront of a new sustainable and high-growth asset class which is going to disrupt the world of work.

Through Kingsway Capital, we joined investment giants KKR and Soros to enhance the ongoing evolution of the ‘digital twin market’, which was valued at $3.21bn in 2020 and is expected to reach $184.5bn by 2030 [Source: Accenture].

Twenty20 Capital Support

We recognised Talos360 as a business which was going through a significant growth phase at a time when technology in the sector was ever more in demand. To support the brand’s evolution we supported the business with financial backing and a programme of management and operational consolidation.

Fast growing and with considerable ambitions, the leadership team within Talos360 identified the need for a new phase of equity support. In 2022, to support the next stage of its growth journey, they made the decision to partner with leading mid-market private equity firm LDC.

At the time of exiting our portfolio, Talos360 had increased its revenue by 56%, which included a 94% increase in tech revenue and a turnover of more than £10m.
