Private investors meet companies that they can invest into.

SyndicateRoom sponsored one of the most hotly anticipated investor events of the year. Around 5,000 private investors joined us at the 15th Master Investor Show on 25th March 2017. The event, held every spring, brings together investors and CEOs from the UK's leading investment platforms.

This year, the event offered private investors the opportunity to meet leading industry experts, discover new and exciting companies and engage with award-winning private fund managers. There was a series of exhibitions, panel discussions and keynote speakers throughout the course of the day. Companies showcasing ranged in size from £1m to £3bn in market cap.


More than 50 exciting companies pitched over the course of an eventful day. Jim Mellon, arguably the UK's most successful investor, again headlined the main stage, with his speech at 11:45am. Later in the day, Jim was joined on stage by SyndicateRoom CEO Gonçalo de Vasconcelos for a fireside chat, where they discussed everything from politics to fintech.

The full line-up for the main stage was as follows:

  • 10:05–10:35   Justin Urquhart Stewart, Seven Investment Management
  • 11:45–12:30   Jim Mellon
  • 13:30–14:00 Tom Stevenson, Fidelity International
  • 14:45–15:15 Alex Wright, Fidelity Special Solutions
  • 16:20–16:50 Gonçalo de Vasconcelos, SyndicateRoom, and Jim Mellon fireside chat
