A MILTON Keynes company played a vital role in getting an Oscar-tipped film off the ground.
Chartered accountants at Chancery, in Boycott Avenue, Oldbrook, worked alongside experts in the film industry and investment markets in establishing the Aegis Film Fund which has been a major backer of The King’s Speech.
The film stars Golden Globe winner Colin Firth in the role of stuttering British monarch King George VI as he struggled to beat his speech impediment. It is set to bring in a massive return of more than 15 per cent for the rich individuals, pension funds and investment bonds which put money into the fund.
Peter Nichols, senior partner at Chancery (UK) LLP said: “Chancery is delighted to be involved in a film widely touted for Oscar nominations.”
The Aegis Film Fund has also invested in Conviction and Burke and Hare.
