The investment team

Jack Cox - Associate Director

Jack Cox

Associate Director

I have been working with aspirational and high growth UK companies for over a decade having previously held roles in Corporate Finance at BDO, working with a wide range of businesses from start-ups to multi-national groups across a variety of sectors.

At Simplyhealth, I look after the end to end venture process between opportunity origination through to post investment performance monitoring & investment assistance.

We’re in a really unique position as a purpose led business, investing in the industry we have deeply significant insight in and I’m really excited to play a part in changing the UK healthcare economy for the better.

Investment Associate

I previously held roles in Investment Banking at J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley and most recently at Barclays where I was part of the advisory team on large IPOs and fundraising processes for high-growth companies across Europe.

At Simplyhealth Ventures, I look at sourcing potential investment opportunities, conducting due diligence on investment processes, and post-investment portfolio management.
