Pension Funds

Unlocking a new asset class

Traditionally, large institutional investors faced challenges in allocating substantial capital flows to venture. FOM is driving change by expanding the accessibility of VC to the pension fund market.

FOM's distinctive strategic approach addresses the traditional incompatibilities between these two industries. This includes our ability to categorise risk effectively, provide robust governance, enable pension funds to dynamically manage their exposure to venture products, funds, and direct deals, and offer independent valuation methodologies.
