Equity Finance

What is Equity Finance?

Equity finance helps businesses to achieve their growth objectives by raising capital from external investors in return for a share of your business.

Popularised by hit television show ‘Dragons’ Den’, it provides a viable alternative to traditional debt finance and can be secured by businesses of different sizes, whether you’re new and seeking funding to get your ideas off the ground or more established and pursuing an injection of capital to take your company to the next level.

As an experienced and fully independent commercial finance broker, we can introduce your business to the most suitable equity finance companies on the market. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.

What are the benefits of equity finance?

  1. Equity finance can be used to fund growth and investment
  2. Investors supply expert advice and support to help you run the business, as well as their ‘contact book’ to unlock new growth avenues
  3. Equity finance providers earn dividend payments on your company’s profits, ensuring their commitment to boosting your company’s success
  4. The level of control exchanged depends on the contract signed. Typically, the more they invest the higher a share an investor will expect
