About Us

Explore opportunity from a unique vantage point.
The EPIC view.

EPIC aspires to be the pre-eminent house in European alternative capital: investment, administration and advice.

EPIC was founded in 2001 by Giles Brand and Hiren Patel, financial services entrepreneurs with backgrounds in private equity. Business building is at the heart of everything we do. We understand the commercial drivers of success and how to support them by allocating capital actively and appropriately. We put our clients first in everything we do.

Our integrated approach supports companies, entrepreneurs and investors by providing access to capital, advice and administration services. Irrespective of the product, EPIC brings an alternatives mindset to investing.

We believe in the enduring tradition of providing independent and discrete finance and counsel to businesses and the people who create them.

This is augmented by a future facing mindset embracing technology and innovation to offer our clients an intelligent and dynamic merchant banking model for the twenty-first century.

We are a client-centred, collegiate team for whom intellectual integrity and honest, considered decision making are the guiding principles.
