Cardiff-based fintech firm launches private investment network

Welsh fintech start-up Delio has launched a private investment community that will help its members expand their distribution capabilities and deal flows.

Called DelioConnect, the community provides financial companies and professionals with access to trusted partners they can engage, connect and communicate with.

They can also use the community to identify potential sources of capital and exciting investment opportunities, all of which are tailored to their business needs.

Through the network, members can connect with professionals and companies from a catalogue of vetted network participants. Delio said this means they can develop propositions “under their own terms”.

Members can upload supporting documentation to an online portal, allowing them to pitch to potential investors and partners. They can easily turn these into actionable propositions to accelerate deal management.

Delio, which has offices in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Brussels and Sydney, already works with a range of top-tier banks and angel network to improve their financial infrastructure.

Gareth Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Delio said: “From our client conversations, we’ve seen a great appetite in the market for a connected network, which enhances and expedites deal flow in a secure and structured way and that’s the inspiration behind DelioConnect.

“We already have around sixty institutions from around the globe going live with us, including wealth managers, family offices and corporate finance houses, and we’re excited to see the impact the network will have for our members and the opportunities it opens for deal originators and investors.”
