Finance your Business

Equity finance is a great way to fund rapid growth or the acquisition of a company.

We can provide equity finance for working capital, equipment purchase, premises, relocations, management buy-outs (MBOs), management buy-ins (MBIs) and other funding requirements across many business sectors including manufacturing and services to businesses.

Our equity investments, usually comprising of shares and loans, are available up to £750,000 on terms that are individually negotiated for each investment. We don’t want to run your company, we leave control with you and in most cases our shareholding will not exceed 25% of the company's equity.

Because our primary objective is to assist in economic regeneration, we are able to take a more understanding approach to helping you grow your business.

For businesses based in our English Regions, have a look at the extra support available through our Equity Growth Fund which is backed by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.

What is Equity Finance

Equity finance involves the funder buying shares in your business, often alongside other finance.
