About Us

Alongside its corporate finance activities Nash & Co Capital provides the Nash SME Structured Loan Service, an execution only deal by deal service to a select community of professional investors, family offices and individuals.


Banks fail to lend sufficiently to assist growing SMEs even when they have material revenues and earnings, while traditional Private Equity/Credit institutions seek larger transaction sizes and/or take equity control of businesses.

Nash & Co’s experienced team source lending opportunities across a range of sectors providing the SME borrower with loans of between £0.5m and £5m. We focus on UK based businesses which are growing, investing or acquisitive and are able to provide fixed assets as collateral. Typically these assets are property and/or plant & machinery owned directly by the company or connected individuals.

The Loan Service may co-invest alongside Nash & Co’s affiliated Principal Lender – Nash Business Capital.

Investment Objective

The Loan Service is focused on providing access to secured loans made to UK based smaller companies across a range of sectors, and is designed to offer the potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns. The security will range from fixed assets to corporate debentures and from senior to subordinate ranking.

Participants in the Loan Service will be given the opportunity to build a diversified portfolio of loans and investments targeting a return via a combination of interest coupons, equity linked carried interest and/or redemption premiums.


The Loan Service is targeted at qualified investors who already have extensive experience in the private equity sector and hold portfolios of illiquid and unquoted assets. We seek to introduce an asset class to those portfolios which delivers an attractive risk adjusted return and allows the investor to elect which opportunities most suit them.

The Loan Service is not available to the general public and applications to join by investors, who meet the firm’s strict investor qualification procedures, will be assessed on a case by case basis according to their status and experience.


Investments made under the Loan Service are not subject to any protection under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Investing in and lending to unquoted companies carries with it a high degree of risk. Early stage companies commonly experience significant change and carry higher risk than would an investment in larger or longer established companies. Potential investors’ capital and the investment return is not guaranteed and an investor may not receive back all (or, indeed, any) of the money he or she invested. The value of assets and collateral provided as security can fall as well as rise. Nash & Co does not provide any recommendations or investment advice in respect of the suitability or merits of the investments made available under the Loan Service and consequently Nash & Co accepts no responsibility for the performance of any investments, nor has any liability to any investor for the success of any investment or transaction in which that investor elects to participate via the Loan Service. The Investor shall bear sole responsibility for evaluating the prospects of any transaction opportunity made under the Loan Service and should conduct his/her own due diligence and appoint his/her own financial adviser.
