Stephen, originally a lawyer with over 35 years’ experience in asset finance, founded Taurus Asset Finance (ARIE Capital’s sister company) in 2011 as an alternative asset finance boutique with a particular focus on opportunities in the real estate, intellectual property, renewables and media sectors. Prior to setting up Taurus Asset Finance, Stephen founded Future Films and has been involved in raising over £2 billion for film and TV production.
Since Taurus‘s inception, Stephen has raised over £500 million for a wide variety of projects including the construction of data centres in the North East England, the renovations of two city landmark buildings into an educational facility and a luxury hotel and the development of next-generation haptic and sound technology.
Stephen has been investing in technology since 2014. ARIE Capital was then launched in 2016 to focus on technology and the bridges between China-Israel-UK. The fund has now made 15 technology-based investments giving a vibrant portfolio that spans companies across various countries and in sectors as diverse as Connectivity, Life Sciences, Fintech, Edtech and Sports/Media Tech.
ARIE now has two exits and the fund has grown from $33M to in excess of $55M.
