We seek out ambitious, innovative and exciting growth companies whose aspirations match our own and those of our clients, where we are able to build strong, lasting, aligned relationships with management. We look to work with management teams that will listen to our investors and that actively strive to build value for their shareholders.
Focussed on public markets, we believe listed entities sometimes fail to connect with their intended audience or aren’t able to interpret their message effectively in a way that can be meaningfully and quickly understood by the active investor. We also believe that these more active investors are often neglected in favour of more elite and powerful institutions that don’t provide for a healthy and liquid trading environment in their shares; this is particularly prevalent in micro and small cap companies. We believe that listed publicly traded companies should be just that: public and trading.

Why Turner Pope Investments
At Turner Pope Investments, we believe it is vitally important for listed companies to engage regularly with their shareholders and wider investment audience, as such Turner Pope Investments have been organising events since December 2016 at a variety of prestige venues within the City of London, including the NED and the RAF Club. This provides an effective platform for both our corporate clients and interesting growth companies to engage, listen and network with likeminded companies and investors that understand and share a passion for their space. We are currently running events on an invitation only basis but are open to speaking to those companies that may like to be involved if we feel their proposition and business aspirations are in the spirit of these events.
