Advice on how to prepare to approach investors and increase the prospect of securing investment.
It isn’t always possible or appropriate to take on a bank loan. Raising risk capital from investors through issuing equity (shares) or repayable bonds is another way your organisation could raise the finance it needs to achieve its goals.
We have an excellent track record of successfully raising finance for our clients directly from a wide range of investors.
We are experienced in structuring and raising different types of finance to suit the needs of our clients including:
- Institutional equity
- Community share offers
- Charity bonds
- Secured and unsecured debt in the form of bonds or mezzanine finance
We typically take a lead advisory role, which covers all aspects of a capital raising, including preparation and approval of financial promotional materials (such as an offer document), sourcing and approaching investors, negotiating terms, support through due diligence and project management of the completion process.
In many cases we have been able to make use of tax reliefs such as EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme), CITR (Community Investment Tax Relief) and SITR (Social Investment Tax Relief). This can have the effect of lowering the cost of capital for our clients alongside increasing the attractiveness of the proposition for investors – particularly individual investors.
