Scottish Investment Bank

The Scottish Investment Bank (SIB) is the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise working in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).

SIB supports economic growth by increasing the supply of finance to Scottish businesses, and helping companies to identify appropriate sources of finance, engage with funders and secure the investment they need to grow their business, as well as helping them strengthen their management teams, make connections and accelerate growth.

SIB operates a number of equity funds on a shared risk co-investment basis with UK and international investors, including business angels, angel syndicates, venture capital groups and corporate investors.

Where equity investment is provided Scottish Enterprise becomes a shareholder in the business. 

Companies with growth aspirations and export potential from across the whole of Scotland are eligible for investment through SIB’s funds.
