M&G Investment Management Limited


We are part of M&G Investments, a leading international institutional investor with assets under management of over £300 billion.

We launched Catalyst in January 2021 to address the gap in scale-up patient capital for innovative businesses involved in creating a more sustainable world.

Why M&G Catalyst?

  • We are flexible, able to offer growth equity, private credit and asset finance to best meet your business’ needs.
  • We have the scale to lead rounds and make follow-on investments.
  • We focus on the world’s biggest environmental and social challenges: climate, health, and tackling inequality.

While we mainly invest from series B to IPO (and beyond), we are always keen to get to know earlier stage businesses so that we will be better able to support you when you are ready for our investment.

Catalyst has made investments in businesses such as Sun King, the largest provider of solar energy products for off-grid homes in Africa and Asia; Vaccitech – the originator of the Oxford COVID vaccine; and Greencore Homes, a climate positive UK housebuilder. In December 2022, we became one of the first large UK asset managers to sign the UK Government’s Investing in Women Code.
