Will Chappel - Palatine Growth Credit

Will Chappel

Head of Growth Credit


I am a ‘people person’, and I hugely enjoy getting to know founders and the businesses that they have built. I have always had a strong focus on working with management teams to help them grow and expand their offerings in a sustainable manner.

As the Head of the Palatine Growth Credit strategy, I am focused on finding new investment opportunities in fast-growing, scalable businesses across the regions throughout the UK. I work very closely with management teams to accelerate growth, push into new markets, develop their impactful approach, and build towards a successful exit or event.

I joined Palatine in 2023, having spent 17 years in Corporate and Investment Banking and Fund Management. I have spent the last ten years in Technology and Growth Credit financing and was part of the team that launched Barclays Venture Debt in 2013. I have successfully launched 3 Growth Credit strategies into the market and am passionate about helping businesses reduce shareholder dilution and maximise their growth potential.

Outside of the office, I enjoy watching Cricket, Football and Tennis (or playing one of these sports very badly) and spending time with my family that includes twin 3-year-old boys that ensure my life is always busy!
