Environmental investor Foresight Group has bolstered its sales team with the appointment of Mark Pearson as sales manager.
Pearson will be primarily focused on raising funds for Foresight’s tax efficient funds including Venture Capital Trusts and Enterprise Investment Schemes, and will focus on expanding Foresight’s retail investor base across the UK, Foresight said.
‘Foresight is a leading investment manager with a solid performance and a great reputation for innovative investment products. There is currently strong investor appetite for tax-efficient opportunities in the environmental space and Foresight is at the forefront of this,’ Pearson said.
Pearson joins from Invicta Capital, where he worked for three years as senior sales manager responsible for business development, fundraising and investor relations.
Bernard Fairman, chairman of Foresight, said tax-efficient investment products are a key element of Foresight’s business focus.
‘[Pearson’s] extensive fund raising and investor relations experience complements our existing team and he will play a key role in establishing relationships with IFAs and private clients and develop our retail offerings.’
