Chris Allner

Partner and Chairman of Investment Committee

Chris, as well as captaining his own boat, is Chairman of the Investment Committee. Many might say that there are similarities between the two: avoiding the storms and commandeering a team to navigate towards smooth waters and steering the vessel towards the sunshine. He is a seasoned sailor and Chairman with over 35 years of venture capital and private equity. 

Chris’ pride and joy is a former 1897 RNLI lifeboat that he has converted into a houseboat in Poole harbour in southern England. His favourite piece of technology is the Libre Freestyle flash blood testing kit that has revolutionised blood sugar control.
