Karl Cockwill

I am a Portfolio Manager for NVM based in Manchester but with a national role. I have a degree in Philosophy Politics and Economics from Mansfield College, Oxford. Prior to NVM I spent 11 years at 3i in a similar role where I was responsible for 29 transactions – all of which were exits.

I most enjoy the variety of businesses I am involved with at Board level, be it a traditional manufacturing business or a software development company. They all bring different challenges!  Most recently I was involved in the sale of Intelling, a tech BPO, to RD Capital for a 4x money multiple which was the highlight of 2021. In May 2022 we completed the acquisition of Orbital Gas Systems by Thyson Technology, now known as nZero Group.

Outside of work I am keen Southport fan and enjoy fly fishing and have a keen interest in food, wine, real ale / craft beer and Italy. I also collect cookery and fly fishing books.
