The best business angels for high-net-worth individuals in 2023

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best business angels and investing networks for high-net-worth-individuals

By Spear's

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.

Many of the advisers in the Spear’s index have established networks, allowing a form of peer review to flourish, and smaller but still substantial investments to be made from a number of sources, amounting to the injection of cash that will spur these early businesses on to great things.
