West Coast Capital is the investment arm of the Hunter family

West Coast Capital is the investment arm of the Hunter family, run and managed by a seasoned team of entrepreneurs and investors with minimum investment levels at circa £5m.

Our investment philosophy is simple. We like to back exceptional founders who have their own money at risk alongside our own. Life is full of exceptions.

Staffed by entrepreneurs, legal and fiscal expertise as well as an analyst team, West Coast Capital aims to build value for the Hunter family over the medium to long-term. The majority of that value over time is being redeployed for the common good by the Hunter Foundation, the family’s philanthropy.

We are headquartered on the west coast of Scotland, with an office in London and a global investment portfolio.

We are a tight, focussed team who are hands on and supportive of our management teams.
