After qualifying as a solicitor, Mohammed Yusef gained considerable expertise in banking, leasing and corporate finance at an international level, and applied it with great success to the media industry. To date he has worked with market leaders including the major Hollywood studios Warner Bros, Sony and Paramount as well as being personally responsible for the $100m fund-raising of HBO’s highly acclaimed television production, Band of Brothers.
Since 2001 Invicta Capital have raised over £1.5 billion across 140 transactions with over £20m raised in the property and renewables sectors. Invicta was responsible for the InterContinental Hotel Staybridge Suites in Birmingham and the Holiday Inn Express in Dundee, together with a renewable solar farm in Scotland via BPRA and EIS structures. The 2018 sale of the solar farm generated a return of £1.16 on a £1.00 investment, not including any of the tax reliefs available via the EIS structure in place.
