Debt and Equity Investment: The Nation’s SME Investor Profile for 2017

3rd March 2017

The UK ranks as the second most entrepreneurial country in the world, boasting lucrative investment opportunities across the private sector. This impressive global status is testament to the country’s appetite for innovation and resilient entrepreneurial spirit, but also to its thriving alternative finance industry and government initiatives that directly encourage investment into high-growth businesses.

To ensure our investor network has access to the full range of entrepreneurial potential on offer across the nation, IW Capital recently launched a new service facilitating private debt-based investment into Britain’s brightest scale-up companies.

To celebrate this launch, we have today released a new report – Debt and Equity: The Nation’s SME Investor Profile for 2017. With 1.72 million UK investors saying they intend to invest in SMEs in 2017 through either debt or equity deals, this report demonstrates how both options can support a tailored SME investment strategy – this is supplemented by further exclusive insight from IW Capital’s executive team.

To read the report, register as a member of Access 42 – IW Capital’s exclusive SME investor network.

Looking ahead, with the 2017 Spring Budget being delivered on Wednesday 8th March, IW Capital is on hand to discuss how this latest round of government initiatives will impact your investment strategy. Immediately following Chancellor Hammond’s speech, we will also be releasing a budget factsheet summarising the key policy reforms to affect SME investors – this factsheet will be made available exclusively to members of Access 42.
