Everton suffer serious financial setback after investment discussions with Maciek Kaminski stall completely

Talks with the Polish-American investment guru have broken down after recent reports linking Kaminski with partial investment or a full purchase of the club from Farhad Moshiri


The blue half of Merseyside could be set for continued frustrations on the financial front after Everton’s plans have reportedly taken a serious hit in the wake of targeted outside investor Maciek Kaminski has stepped away from the negotiating table.

A Polish-American investment magnate, Kaminski is the founder and president of the US-based Kaminski Asset Management, Inc. which has a portfolio that manages funds estimated to be in the billions of dollars while also boasting significant sway on the stock exchange, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Kaminski also offers private portfolio and account management and investment advice pertaining to central European markets and has been in the field over the past 15 years, and rumors began to swirl previously that he was locked in talks to consider a possible £400m takeover from current majority owner Farhad Moshiri, if not at the very least to come on board as an outside minority shareholder to offer increased cash into the pot so that the club could press on with its plans for their new ground at Bramley-Moore Docks.

But now, according to The Telegraph’s Matt Law, Kaminski has distanced himself from negotiations with Everton after there has been no resumption of talks since the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, with Law reporting that there is little indication that Kaminski intends to come back to the table any time soon.

This would constitute a severe blow for the club which is in the midst of relative turmoil as they sit in the relegation zone in the Premier League and are a real contender to drop down to the Championship after escaping that same fate last season.

Everton supporters voiced their displeasure and outright anger at Moshiri’s ownership during the Toffees’ 2-1 home loss against Southampton at Goodison Park over the weekend, which saw the club’s form drop to five losses across their last six fixtures in the league while dropping down to nineteenth in the table, level on points with the aforementioned Saints (20th) and West Ham United (18th).

The Toffees have spent over £700m since Moshiri came into the club in 2016, first as a minority owner before acquiring 94% of the club’s shares just last year. and amid questions surrounding the direction of the club, its financial picture (£370m in losses across the last three years), uncertainty on whether they will draw the eye of FFP sanctions, and if the club’s ownership can finally bring in the right man for the job on the touchline, at the very least, Kaminski’s report £1bn in personal wealth would have gone a long way in addressing certain fears across the current landscape.
