Glasgow, 25 March 2024

N4 Partners (N4) is delighted to complete a further seven figure investment into Opulus Financial (Opulus) to become the majority shareholder of the business.

Alongside this, N4’s Keith Gibson will also be tasked in the interim period of establishing a corporate finance function to service SMEs and entrepreneurs throughout Scotland and the UK.

Alan Dowie, Opulus’ new CEO, commented: “We’re incredibly excited to become the majority shareholder of Opulus. We wanted to increase our position in the business because we recognise the enormous potential, based on the current platform and management team, to expand the business further with a number of exciting acquisitions on the horizon.”
