James Arrowsmith

Investment Partner

I joined NVM in 2005 and I look after the Midlands region identifying new businesses for NVM to invest in and work with our existing investments to grow value for our investors. I also sit on NVM’s investment committee.

I have a degree in Banking & Finance from Loughborough University.

Most recently I was delighted to have led our recent investment in Dale Power, which as well as being the leading independent provider of critical power solutions in the UK, is also now at the forefront of the rapidly developing market for distributed energy storage

Previously, in 2017, I was proud of NVM’s sale of Optilan to deliver a 3 times money multiple for investors and seeing the “CCi”, developed by Volumatic, become the first choice point of sale note validator and safe for UK retailers, justifying the faith that we had in management and their product when we invested.

Outside of work I enjoy a range of sports including windsurfing, golf and cycling, although my two boys now beat me at everything, which is a bit disappointing!  I also enjoy travelling.

I thrive on seeing management teams grow and develop and take advantage of the opportunities available to their businesses.”
