Politician, one investing in evasive business (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

company

Here is my best explanation:

'business' is the definition.

(company is a kind of business)

'politician one investing in evasive' is the subsidiary indication.

'politician' becomes 'mp'.

'one' becomes 'an' (I've seen this in other clues).

'investing in' indicates putting letters inside.

'evasive' becomes 'coy'.

'mp'+'an'='mpan'

'mpan' going within 'coy' is 'company'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for company that I've seen before include "two, apparently?", "Group of soldiers, business", "See 10", "Commercial business", "Fellowship", "Firm, concern", "Two, they say", "Guests", "Crew" and "Actors".)
