Tech-focused London boutiques

I am looking for boutiques with a general focus on tech. Just to give you an idea, my dream firm would have a rather wide mandate in terms of asset class and would invest in public equities (L/S + LO), private equity (VC) and cryptoassets.

Do such firms exist in London?

Why do you want to be in a tech focused boutique rather than the tech group at an EB/BB/MM?

In London Arma Partners is killing it in terms of VC funding. Otherwise FT partners I guess. Both will work you to death and have very high turnover. 
 

You could apply to Catalyst but good luck getting in...

Most realistic bet if you have a top CV would be Goldman TMT / MS tech / JPM / BAML and then the likes of Evercore, Moelis, Laz, Roth who have a nice tech deal flow. DB was good too historically but not sure what current momentum is. 
 

Otherwise not sure who the good tech MM are besides Arma

Yeah I actually meant AM/HF firms haha, which is why I posted in the HF forum. By boutiques I meant smaller funds for which it'd be maybe easier to recruit through networking, as I'm not sure that SoftBank and Temasek have analyst programmes in London.

I'll probably have to go through banking first anyway - thanks for the list!

It is going to be quite a challenge to get into HF directly, I think there are a few entry buyside programmes but probably not for the firms you're looking for
