In 2023, we celebrate 25 years of Sturgeon Ventures. Read on to learn more about the award-winning company and our extensive history with them.
Haggards Crowther’s Partnership with Sturgeon Ventures
At Haggards Crowther, we are proud to be working closely with Sturgeon Ventures, referring clients to their expert team, and them to us.
Both Sturgeon Ventures and Haggards Crowther work closely with start-up businesses as well as established companies in need of regulatory hosting and/ or regulatory incubation – as well as a vast range of other financial services. Peter was Seonaid’s Personal Tax advisor as Sturgeon started as the trading name for a sole trader licence Sturgeon Ventures.
The FSA brought in Approved Persons for the first time in December 2021, and Sturgeon Ventures started to incubate individuals. Peter Crowther began to benefit from introductions to start-ups – Melyvyn Davies was added to the mix and worked closely with Haggards Crowther until his retirement.
Peter Crowther joined forces with Andrew Haggard back in 2005 – and Haggards Crowther supported Seonaid and her Ventures. Sturgeon Ventures LLP was incorporated into an Asset Management and Corporate Finance firm a year later, and Haggards continued to support individuals and companies.
