Equity Capital Markets & Corporate Broking UK

Total commitment to providing high-quality client service and access to capital

Finding the means to secure capital can be a significant stumbling block, especially when a business is getting ready for a new round of funding or possibly seeking a merger or acquisition. Navigating the waters of corporate broking can be easy when you have experts from finnCap helping you every step of the way.

Businesses need access to pools of capital that not only support them at vital stages but help prepare a business raise equity.

We provide a proactive corporate broking service that helps our clients succeed and outperform their peers and competitors through thoughtful analysis and advice that you just won’t get elsewhere.

Experts in Equity/ Capital Raising

Our Equity Capital Markets (ECM) team's capabilities enable our clients to access capital to drive growth, undertake M&A and achieve their ambitions.

It is vital that everyone is on the same level. That’s why our team gets to know precisely what your aims are and where you see the future of your business going before jumping to conclusions with poorly judged equity opportunities.

Equity raising specialists home in on the right opportunities that create powerful partnerships over the years. Equity may seem like something that is needed instantly for some but knowing where the right investors lie (that will benefit a company in the long term) is more important than getting to the next quarter and then worrying about who has onboarded.

finnCap capital raising specialists help tell the story of your investment plans and paint a clear picture of where the business will go with the right people attached.

Corporate Risk and Broking

The capitals market is one which quite rightly requires a high level of regulation. finnCap help businesses understand the risks involved with capital and provide a safe roadmap towards brokerage. An equity capital markets analyst can be the key when discerning whether a company is in good favour to carry out actions like major asset purchases.

As the intermediary between our corporate clients and their investors, our Corporate Broking team works closely with equity sales, trading and corporate finance to ensure our clients receive proactive advice and market intelligence.

The Corporate Broking team is committed to delivering a premium service to our clients. Utilising research and sector expertise, the team is devoted to promoting our clients in the most effective way to enhance and institutionalise a share register, maximise trading liquidity and increase a share price.

In addition, the Investor Relations team help organise and provide dedicated logistical support to all our clients during roadshows and investor marketing programmes, investor conferences and Capital Market Days. Investor Relations also produce investor profiles for all roadshows as well as producing regular share register analysis and oversee the collation of investor feedback.

Working with Foreign Companies

Corporate broking comes as standard here in the UK, but the concept isn’t so well-known when working with foreign investors. Having a corporate broking team at hand to help assuage those differences and provide insights on market trends can help with everything from buying side advisory to striking while the iron is hot when issuing new shares.

ECM Protection

Equity is valuable for any client, and we can help ensure that equity release, if planned, is carried out with your interests in mind. By reducing exposures to risk and making sure that a release of equity doesn’t alter positions or raise doubt to potential investors, we can provide the protection needed, so it doesn’t feel like there is a cost of equity or capital at stake.
