Tim Farazmand


Tim has spent 30 years in private equity. His last full-time role was as Managing Director at LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Bank, where he worked for 12 years. He previously had senior roles at 3i Group Plc and Royal Bank of Scotland Private Equity.

Tim was Chair of the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) for the 2014-2015 term. He currently chairs the Palatine Impact Fund, sits on the Advisory Board of Beechbrook Capital and the boards of Estio, The Lakes Distillery, Vinoteca and the Baronsmead Second Venture Trust plc.

When he’s not helping his wife look after their dogs, alpacas, ducks and chickens, Tim’s passions are live music – especially reggae – and football. Although, being a Villa fan can often be more stressful than it is fun.

"We use PCB as a trusted partner with specialised expertise. They work closely with our key stakeholders and have a strong understanding of our business. We have seen on many M&A strategic assignments that PCB has an intimate network and sector insights that we can leverage to inform our executive decisions."
