SEP named UK Venture Capital and Growth Equity Firm of the Year for 2017

Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) has been named Venture Capital and Growth Equity Firm of the Year at the 2017 British Private Equity Awards, sponsored by Unquote.

This is the sixth time that SEP has picked up the award for venture capital in recent years.

SEP was also presented with an award for Exit of the Year in respect of the £1.5 billion sale of travel search company Skyscanner to NASDAQ-listed Ctrip.

SEP’s Managing Partner, Calum Paterson, said: “We are very pleased to receive these two awards, which reflect the great work that is done right across our team and by the companies we invest in. The Unquote Awards recognise the vital role that private equity and venture capital plays in the UK economy more generally, and we congratulate all the nominees on their achievements”.
