Investment Approach

Since 2006, Polygon has invested over £20 million in 15 businesses and property developments, and for the past 3 years the Group has had an average return on NAV of 21.7%.

In structuring its investments, Polygon makes extensive use of the innovative range of Guernsey and Jersey corporate structures, including Protected Cell companies (PCC’s) and Incorporated Cell companies (ICC’s). This provides a range of flexible, tailored solutions, depending upon a company’s requirements.

We invest where our capital and management expertise can create significant added value for ourselves and our partners. Our investment partnerships facilitate new ventures or existing management teams, typically holding a 50% investment.

Once an investment has been made, the Polygon team often provide Directors, investment, accounting and company secretarial support. Current investments include the Heritage Group Limited, Vantage Limited, Law At Work Channel Islands Limited, Advantage Underwriting Limited and One St Julian’s Avenue (the Vauxlaurens Brewery redevelopment). Because Polygon does not have external shareholders, it can be flexible with a long term outlook when working with and investing in our entrepreneurial partners.

Polygon Group Limited is the holding company for Polygon Investments ICC Limited and Polygon Insurance Company Limited, which both offer investment partnerships, depending upon regulatory requirements. In addition, Polygon Insurance continues as a Guernsey‑domiciled insurance company in run‑off and the Group purchases small captives for third party insurers in run‑off.

Martin Belcher is the Chairman and sole shareholder of the Polygon Group, adding his extensive experience in insurance and management to our partnership model. He is currently the Chairman of most of our Partner companies listed on the Current Investments page.
