Equity finance

A top 5 UK equity investor*, we can provide equity to support growth, buying a business and developing a tech venture.

What is equity finance?

Equity financing is raising capital from investors taking a stake in your business for cash. Unlike taking a loan there are no monthly repayments required.

Equity finance can be used across the business lifecycle. It can provide seed finance to tech start-ups, growth capital for established businesses, and support management teams when buying a business. It is a versatile type of finance that can be used alongside loans.
