First Sentinel PLC shares were listed on the AQSE (formerly NEX exchange) in order to provide investors with access to potentially high-growth SME investment propositions through one vehicle. Our mission has always been to create and deliver strong returns through investing in pioneering SME companies in the UK and around the world.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far, helping companies achieve accelerated growth and build long-term value, as well as providing investors with consistent returns and performance. Since 2017, First Sentinel has financed companies in various sectors, from commodities to education. We have since expanded our operations into Australia with the strategic acquisition of an invoice purchasing company, enabling the business to increase its invoice purchasing capacity by over 80%. Capitalising on this success and the expertise gained, we funded and developed our UK supply chain finance fintech partner, Capable Finance. We have also provided capital and advisory services to a number of companies in the mineral and mining sectors.

But we’re not resting on our laurels. We’re always seeking new avenues for growth and identifying cutting-edge businesses and projects that could benefit from our investment and expertise. Right now that includes a pharmaceutical company, Stabilitech BioPharma, developing an oral vaccine for coronavirus and Vulcan Industries, a rapidly expanding group of precision engineering companies, but who knows what the future will bring…
