The two core investment divisions and approach at IamFire

The company has streamlined its investment remit through the creation of two divisions that represent the nature of opportunities IamFire are pursuing.

High growth division (HG Division): In the high growth segment, IamFire concentrates on investing in enterprises that have reached a notable point in their growth journey when they need to secure specialised capital investment, trade sales, or public market exits. As part of its investment approach, IamFire is on a hunt for global opportunities, eyeing the companies with a strong balance sheet, promising growth profile and management team that have an approach of unhindered operations. 

Asset augmentation division (AA Division): This division of IamFire has been structured to focus on distressed asset situations. The aim of this strategy is that the company could potentially expand through a broad restructuring and re-capitalisation and by introducing management and directors.

The very ethos of WeShop since foundation has been to combine social networks and e-commerce to build a brand, trusted network & marketplace that characterizes this critical theme in the modern world.

IamFire plc has studied this identity and its perceived demand in the global marketplace and strongly believe that it has a global presence as a brand and is an application that the consumer will rely on and steadily engage. As per the management-
