Growth Capital

Growth companies require investment to sustain or accelerate their expansion.

Assisting business growth in all investments

As a business becomes more established, it becomes harder to fund new developments entirely from cash reserves or traditional bank lending.

Here, an injection of growth capital – also referred to as development capital or expansion capital - can provide the necessary fuel to get your business to the next level, without relinquishing control.

This form of investment can provide working capital to scale up new production facilities, critical infrastructure, overseas presence or product development.

Most management teams use growth capital to fund a transformational stage of their business' development, taking advantage of market conditions to improve their market presence.
