Arie Capital Limited

About

The ARIE Group is a financial services group with a cross-border focus primarily on venture capital investments and providing advisory and fund management services. 


Our focus on investing in transformative technologies that have global applications comes at the perfect time as the demand for new technologies has accelerated through the pandemic. 


Founded in 2016, we now have £500 million assets under management, with offices in 6 countries around the world and a team of 41 staff. 


Most excitingly, this has led to us now receiving new investment opportunities from around the world on the back of our growing reputation as a global investor in technology. 

 

"The ARIE Group has a proven track record with two full exits and two partial exits, out of 15 investments, including one to Google. One portfolio company IPO’d at $150m in November 2021 with another undergoing a $1bn IPO in Q1 2022. "
