Delio’s team achievements recognised at the BVCA’s Vision 2022 awards
Delio has been recognised as having one of the UK’s best management teams backed by private equity or venture capital at the prestigious Vision 2022 awards. The awards, which are run by the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) and supported by consulting giants Grant Thornton, highlights exceptional performance across a number of metrics including commercial growth, competitiveness and innovation.
Gareth Lewis, chief executive and co-founder of Delio, received the award at the Vision 2022 National Dinner held in Bristol on 30th June. Judges noted that Delio had been selected for recognition as it operates a “very unique business model”, “is strong on innovation and growth” and their “ambition to drive start-up tech culture in Cardiff” was highly commendable.
Since its formation in 2015, Delio has grown from an embryonic idea to one of the UK’s fastest growing fintechs. Its private markets technology is now used by more than 90 financial institutions in 18 countries and enables firms to connect their clients with alternative investment opportunities quickly, efficiently and compliantly. Delio’s clients include some of the world’s most respected companies such as Barclays, UBS and Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank.
Upon receiving the trophy, Gareth Lewis said; “While it is always pleasing to win awards, this recognition stands out as it reflects the hard work that goes on behind the scenes by each and every member of the Delio team.
“As our business has grown over the last few years, we’ve worked exceptionally hard to ensure that we recruit people who believe in what we’re doing and share our passion for serving our clients, but undertake their roles with the right attitude and approach. As a result, we’re proud to have maintained our ‘start-up culture’ while growing into a truly international organisation. This award is for every member of our team and what we’ve achieved so far, but also the way in which we’ve achieved it.”
Michael Moore, BVCA Director General, said; “Private equity and venture capital are supporting businesses across the UK to innovate, grow, create jobs and bring value to the communities they operate within. The companies recognised are leading examples of how a business can grow with the funding, business expertise and hands-on management approach synonymous with private capital.”
