About Eight Capital Partners:

Eight Capital Partners plc is an international investing company whose investment strategy focuses on technology, media, telecoms and financial services businesses, including both privately-owned and listed entities. It has recently refined its strategy to focus increasingly upon investing in those businesses engaged in "Fintech" operations, from the digitisation of banking services, through to blockchain-backed decentralised finance companies and "crypto banks".


ECP provides equity, debt, and equity-related investment capital to companies seeking capital for growth and development, consolidation or acquisition, or pre-IPO financing. The Company seeks to generate an attractive rate of return for shareholders, predominantly through capital appreciation, by taking advantage of the increasing number of investment opportunities within the continuously developing global technology, media, telecoms and financial services sectors.
