Name : The Evolve Mezzanine Fund
Mission : To facilitate the creation, diversification and expansion of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the North East by providing access to finance where risks are in excess of normal market considerations and on terms which will encourage take up.
NEL’s applied expertise : In response to the deepening financial crisis, investors approached the fund management community to design and deliver a fast-acting fund addressing urgent financial needs by local businesses. NEL’s services were selected and we deployed the Evolve Mezzanine Fund at speed. The fund delivered our investors mission to keep small businesses growing when avenues for finance were tightening on all fronts. NEL is proud that, in partnership with a committed investor, we were opening new funds when others looked to reduce existing facilities.
