Keith Charlton

I am a qualified Chartered Accountant, and a highly experienced investment professional, having worked in the venture capital sector since 2001.  During this time, I have been involved in a number of investment opportunities ranging from £100k to £8.1 million across a wide range of sectors and for various purposes.

Having acted as Finance Director to several North-East SMEs, particularly whilst fund raising, as well as having performed pre-investment appraisal/due diligence and financial management services I have gained valuable understanding of SMEs and the difficulties they face in raising funds, as well as first-hand experience of the key drivers of successful businesses and the challenges and pressures that they face.

Prior to joining FW Capital, I also worked as a Chartered Accountant in the City of London, as well as in financial services regulation with the Securities and Investments Board (now the FCA), and in the Listing Department of the London Stock Exchange.
