Our vision is to partner up with well run, entrepreneurial businesses.


Enabling them to scale & access to capital. 


We´re a family investment firm composed of a very experienced senior management team.

Having started our own businesses and becoming entrepreneurs, we have found the struggles that most SMEs face when trying to growth their businesses.

Opulentia Capital was born out of a need for SMEs to access capital, scale and exit.


Having started in the recruitment industry, we have now participated in over 23 industries, made over 250M+ worth of transactions, been involved as shareholders in 60+ businesses.


We are now looking to work with businesses with £1m-£100m/year in revenue and profitable.
