For most, there comes a point when they seek to realise some of that effort and commitment.

Equity release transactions – sometimes referred to as cash out deals – enable owners to de-risk their personal financial positions by selling part of their shareholding to a private equity investor while remaining fully involved in their business.

As well as releasing value from the business, the involvement of an institutional investor can also kick-start a period of accelerated growth, creating the optimum conditions for a full exit for the shareholders in due course.
