The best business angels for high-net-worth individuals in 2022

The best business angels for high-net-worth individuals in 2022

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best business angels for high-net-worth-individuals in the UK. The list features our Top Recommended advisers 

Business angels are private investors who identify promising early-stage companies and provide them with capital, often in exchange for an equity stake. Many are themselves successful entrepreneurs, and leverage their personal expertise to help develop the companies they invest in, nurturing their growth trajectory to steer it towards reaching its full potential.

For high-net-worth (HNW) individuals with £1 million or more in investable assets, business angels can be useful partners – either as co-investors, or as a source of funding for their own business. The best business angels will conduct a rigorous analysis of their potential investments, using their entrepreneurial nous to ensure that their capital is deployed in a wise and effective way.

This year Spear's welcomes Oliver Woolley of Envestors, a network of investors that has channelled more than £126 million into early stage businesses.

Spear’s publishes annual rankings of the top private client advisers and service providers to HNWs. These are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, client feedback, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
