Investment Lead

Fiona Beresford

Fiona works in our Investment Team, leading on opportunities and working with management teams to help them scale their businesses.

Work-life began as a lawyer at Freshfields where Fiona qualified into the private equity team. A partner there once described a career in corporate law as “a backstage pass to the most exciting deals and developments in the business world”. A secondment to Cinven opened Fiona’s eyes to the fact that why be backstage when you can be part of the action? She re-trained in finance at LSE and learnt the ropes doing an intern analyst position back at Cinven.

In early 2019, Fiona joined the Tenzing team, drawn to the originality of our approach to PE, the highly talented colleagues she’d get to work alongside and the fact we have a bar in the office. Since then she has built a passion for working closely with management teams and being hands-on, to help them scale to the next level. 

Fiona is on the board at Saville Assessment, activpayroll, PSSG and Altum.

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”

Passions

  • Gardening – Fiona’s love of growing things started young when her father told her (aged 8) that a shop bought avocado stone would never grow. 20+ years later, she has a 10ft avocado tree standing proudly in her garden flat.
  • Scuba diving – under the water is her personal place of meditation. She’s done over 100 dives and spent two months living on the island of Utila whilst doing her dive master.

Confessions

  • Accomplished Grade 8 Distinction on the recorder. Yes, that instrument most people give up when they’re 10.
  • Only started speaking aged three and has been making up for lost time ever since.
