Canadian cannabis companies tapping U.K.'s deep-pocketed family offices for investment

Over the past three years, while Canadian licensed producers were raising millions in investor dollars from boutique investment firms on Bay Street, Scott Boyes embarked on a different route in the hunt for capital, one that led him to family offices and high net worth investors parked in the U.K.

“Bay Street — the Canaccords and Echelons and GMPs — were funding Canadian licensed producers that weren’t going to have any revenue or earnings for years. My U.K. partners said, ‘Look, we’ll get this funded, just come over to London,’” said Boyes, the chief executive of MPX International, which has cannabis cultivation and retail assets in Europe and South Africa and is listed on the CSE.

Canada's Canopy aims to bring pot products to U.K. this year

Canopy Growth Corp. (WEED.TO 0.61%) has joined forces with a U.K. researcher of cannabis-based therapies after the British government moved to liberalize the use of medical marijuana.

The new company, formed with Beckley Canopy Therapeutics Ltd., aims to make products available in Britain from early this year. The government made it legal for specialist doctors to prescribe medical marijuana for patients with severe clinical need in November.

The decision came after studies showed that it could benefit children with conditions such as severe epilepsy, although the government said it was not a step toward legalizing cannabis for recreational use.

How to be a cannabis baron

A couple of weeks ago I posed a question: would you be willing to invest in legal cannabis?

I was trying to take the temperature.

I know, as a rule, you’re interested in money-making opportunities. And pot definitely ticks that box.

But I didn’t want to get ahead of myself, and share tonnes of research, only to find out you’re disgusted by the idea of investing in legal cannabis, and you’re planning on unsubscribing, and reporting me to the police.

I needn’t have worried. I got about seventy emails on the subject, and only one of them was against investing in pot. They’re still coming in.

So today I’m going to share a bit more with you. I’ll talk about how we got to this point, where a multi-billion pound business is about to take off overnight.
