Welcome to the Breeding Capital Website

An investment in Breeding Capital enables private individuals to access a portfolio of quality bloodstock assets. The Companies have the benefit of an experienced management team with a proven track record in managing high quality bloodstock assets. Breeding Capital is committed to maintaining a significant investor relations programme, and providing Shareholders with a clear exit strategy. The principal objective is to deliver returns to investors in the medium term.

The global bloodstock industry is significant and the asset backing and liquidity of the underlying assets makes it an alternative asset class worthy of consideration.

Breeding Capital has four different companies. Breeding Capital PLC raised £3.2 million in 2006, and has now been wound up, with funds returned to investors, having realised all of its bloodstock assets.

Breeding Capital II PLC, Breeding Capital III PLC and Breeding Capital IV PLC, referred to as Breeding Capital 2008, together raised £5 million in 2008. They are all closed too, having been oversubscribed, and they were wound up as expected in early 2014.

In 2011, we completed a further fund raising for Breeding Capital V, referred to as Breeding Capital 2011, which was also oversubscribed.

If you are interested in Breeding Capital, please do not hesistate to contact us.

Christopher Holdsworth Hunt and William Sporborg collectively have over 35 years of experience in working with high growth companies; Simon Marsh, Charlie Gordon-Watson and Michael Youngs have worked together for twenty years and have demonstrated an excellent track record in the bloodstock world. Adrian Nicoll assists us with our bloodstock trading in Australasia.
