 “TCAM is a fabulous addition to the 7IM family. The Tcam team will augment 7IM’s London and Jersey based operations, providing us with a strong base in Edinburgh as well as additional resource and expertise in our investment team.”

Comment from Duncan Johnson, Caledonia’s head of unquoted investments:

 “The investment in 7IM exemplifies Caledonia’s successful, partnership approach to investing, providing the support and follow-on capital required to build incremental sustainable value in our investee companies over the long term.”
