Welcome to the fourteenth edition of Profile.

The start of the year has been another busy period for South Yorkshire Investment Fund's investment managers - both on the Small Business Fund and Capital and Development Funds. You can read about some of the latest SYIF investments in this newsletter.

You will also find that some of the articles in this edition cover companies who have returned to us for further loans. SYIF is only too happy to help companies as they grow and need further financial assistance. If your company is requiring further funding, please give one of our investment managers a ring.

SYIF can also give assistance to the county's businesses when they want to purchase property. You can read how we helped a handful of companies with this on this page. Conditions do apply to the loans but full details can be obtained from us.

South Yorkshire Investment Fund can provide loan and equity linked investments, ranging from £15k to £2.5m, specifically to help small and medium businesses meet the gaps in funding they need for growth and development. If your company is requiring financial assistance, give us a ring on 01709 386377 or email us at info@syif.com and we can explain how we can help you.

I hope you enjoy reading this latest issue of Profile!
