The corporate finance team at Triodos Bank helps businesses and charities connect directly with investors to raise finance. We have raised £90 million for 27 positive impact organisations since 2011.
Many social enterprises and charities need advice and assistance before they are in a position to engage with potential investors and take on external investment. We can help your organisation prepare for this and become investment ready. This would typically include advice on your business plan and financial strategy as well as the best way to present your social and environmental impact.
We will help you identify the type of investment to offer, the likely cost to your organisation and the sort of investors it will appeal to.
We also help to promote offers to investors. We’ll work with our clients to agree a marketing plan, and prepare and approve all promotional material in line with Financial Conduct Authority regulations.
We are experienced in structuring and raising different types of finance to suit the needs of our clients including:
- Charity bonds
- Community share offers
- Secured and unsecured debt in the form of bonds or mezzanine finance
- Institutional equity
