William Sporborg

Advisor, Private Markets

I became an Advisor to Bailey Fisher in 2017, focusing on Private Markets.  I have known Bailey Fisher since the company was founded and was one of its first clients.

Having been educated at Cambridge University, I qualified as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse, before working in the leisure industry and the private equity industry in London.

I broke my back in the mid-nineties in a racing accident and relocated to Suffolk. In 1997 I joined N W Brown & Co, initially working in corporate finance before becoming a Co-founder of The Cambridge Gateway Fund, an early stage technology fund.  I left The Cambridge Gateway Fund in 2005, and have since designed, raised and managed niche alternative tax efficient investments in bloodstock, racing, jewellery and fine wine.  I am a Trustee of the Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust and The Wavertree Trust; a Director of Newmarket Racecourse and a member of the Jockey Club.
