Tcam, one of the UK’s leading integrated wealth management firms, has been announced as a new corporate partner for Entrepreneurial Scotland, the country’s leading organisation for entrepreneurial leaders. The announcement illustrates how much value investors like Tcam put in supporting entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey, whether they are emerging, growing or leading businesses.

The Tcam announcement comes during a busy week for Entrepreneurial Scotland as they hold their annual conference this Thursday 4th May at the Gleneagles Hotel. The ES Summit is focusing on the theme of scale-ups and brings together 300 of Scotland’s business leaders.

Haig Bathgate, Tcam’s Joint Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, said:

“It’s never been a more exciting time for entrepreneurs in Scotland and Tcam are keen to support this explosion of entrepreneurial activity. Despite challenges for both the Scottish and global economy, Tcam, like Entrepreneurial Scotland (ES), take a longer view on how to identify, nurture and grow emerging opportunities for our investors. That’s why it means so much to be named as a corporate partner for ES.”

Sandy Kennedy, CEO of Entrepreneurial Scotland, said:

“We’re proud to have Tcam on board as a corporate partner. They bring with them a level of understanding, expertise and influence, which will be invaluable for our members. They understand the entrepreneurial landscape, have an enviable track record for successful investments and will therefore play a vital role in our ambition to make Scotland the most entrepreneurial society in the world. I look forward to working with Tcam on achieving this exciting goal.”
