#LFT Lift Global Ventures – Zak Mir, CEO of Lift Global Ventures (LFT: AQSE) Pre – Listing Interview

Lift Global Ventures plc, led by the well-known stock market commentator, CEO Zak Mir, announced its £1.7m raise with the company, set to list on the Aquis Stock Exchange Growth Market (AQSE) in London, UK, in January 2022

In today interview, Alan Green from Novus Comms speaks with Zak to better understand the rationale behind the new listing and what investors can expect from the management team.

Zak Mir, CEO of Lift Global Ventures, said, “The run-up to the fundraise and listing on Aquis early in the New Year is an exciting period for Lift Global Ventures. The financial media and technology space remains one of opportunity for the Company.”

LFT is an investor in the financial media and technology space. It intends to hunt in the back garden of the Directors’ experience which runs the gamut of service providers and investment houses on the stock market.

The company is an investor in the financial media and technology space. It intends to hunt in the back garden of the Directors’ experience which runs the gamut of service providers and investment houses on the stock market.

Financial media and technology are areas that have experienced strong conditions since the start of the pandemic, with online communication and trading platforms currently regarded as amongst the hottest spaces in the new economy. Even more noteworthy is the way that, despite recent volatility, those supplying the “picks and shovels” to the Gold Rush in this space, such as the Robinhood and Reddit brigade, have now become mainstream.

There is also the added boost the technology and media plays here can be strongly revenue-generating and scalable. An opportunity that adds to Lift’s attraction is the way that UK tech is still rated well below that of its US counterparts. Therefore, Lift can acquire UK businesses to later exit at Stateside valuations.

The pre-IPO round for Lift saw several high-profile investors from the City take part, not only underlining the rationale behind the venture but through their network allowing the company to be exceptionally well placed in terms of access to deal flow and hence, opportunity. Lift expects to be an aggregator, disruptor and consolidator in its chosen niche.

Investment Strategy :

Lift seeks to build a portfolio of complementary businesses operating within the financial media and related technology sectors, for example:

· Financial news websites and other forms of “new media”

· Investment research providers

· Financial PR, IR, design and marketing agencies

· Production studios and visual content providers

· Technology platforms that facilitate capital raising and/or lending

Lift’s Board aims to leverage its vast sector experience and extensive network of contacts to not only identify compelling acquisition and investment opportunities but also to advise and add value to portfolio companies on an ongoing basis.
