Arterial are a breath of fresh air in the EIS/alternative asset space. The transparency of their IM’s and its supporting information is industry leading. But best of all the quality of the investment opportunities they introduce are simply exceptional. Arterial align their interests with the investor from the start to the finish and I have no hesitation to recommend them to other advisers who wish to do likewise.

Our firm has worked with Arterial since 2014 on a number of biotech startup/investment projects. We have first-hand experience of the incredibly high standards they demand of their counterparties, and their uncompromising insistence on all aspects of due diligence for investee firms.

I was introduced to Arterial in May 2015 with a view to raising significant capital for my life science technology business. I found their approach exceptionally refreshing, simultaneously favouring both the business founders and the investors. This was very different to anything that I had previously come across when speaking with private equity firms. Arterial’s support has been far reaching, in that they have been instrumental in introducing me to a number of captains of industry, some of whom are now on my board! I thoroughly recommend Arterial and their amazing team to any life science business seeking both funds and a partner committed to making their business a global success.

I am delighted to work with Arterial, and proud to be able to consider my firm to be one of their professional counterparties.

MARK OTTO – Chief Executive, New Europe Advisers Ltd
I first met the Arterial team in 2012 when they entered into negotiations with our company to explore the opportunity on investing in the company’s Biotechnology IP. We found their approach to funding for life science, their professionalism and the global reputation of their team and their determination to see a business succeed was so refreshing in comparison to numerous other VC’s we had previously approached. We have no hesitation in recommending other life science companies to work with the Arterial management team who we know will enthusiastically pursue a successful outcome.
