Specialist Appointed to Strengthen Investment Team

FastForward Innovations Ltd, the AIM quoted company focusing on making investments in fast growing and industry leading businesses, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Mr. Alfredo Pascual as Vice President of Investment Analysis effective 1 April 2021.

In this role, Alfredo's focus will be on sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities in the burgeoning European medical cannabis industry as well as supporting the growth of FastForward's portfolio companies in the sector.

Having worked in the cannabis space since the end of 2016, Alfredo is a well-known name in the sector across global markets. Alfredo most recently worked as International Analyst at Marijuana Business Daily (MJBizDaily), the US-based business news and information resource, where he focussed on how cannabis markets and investments were evolving internationally.

Mr. Alfredo Pascual commented, "This is an important time to join the team at FastForward and I am keen to align my experience in the flourishing European medical cannabis sector with their position in the UK as the only quoted investment fund with a significant exposure to the space .

"After spending recent years analysing the complex European cannabis industry, I am excited to now work with FastForward to find and assess companies which are well positioned to capitalise on the opportunities being presented in the sector, and which are potential investment opportunities for FastForward."

Ed McDermott, Chief Executive Officer of FastForward, commented, "I am delighted to welcome Alfredo to our team; his experience and sector knowledge will be invaluable to FFWDs shareholders as our investment focus increasingly leans towards health, wellness and medical cannabis. Alfredo is based in Germany which is home to the largest medical cannabis market in Europe. In this regard, we are extremely ambitious and with liquid assets valued at north of GBP12 million, we look forward to delivering more investment news shortly."
