Capital raising

Sourcing capital in a thriving economy is difficult; sourcing capital in a struggling economy is virtually impossible if you do not know the process to follow and the mindset of the financial market participants. Many hours of your precious time, which is best used in protecting and growing your business, gets diverted to financial and legal matters of which you may have little or no knowledge. This is where Crest Capital comes in.

Our Team includes directors with over 30 years’ experience in the international financial markets.

We are well connected in global and local capital markets having raised and arranged capital for diverse projects from large corporate to community projects using traditional and creative funding structures.

We assist predominantly privately owned businesses to raise equity or debt capital (or a combination of both) to facilitate organic growth, business acquisitions, project finance and restructurings. Once we have understood your needs and the drivers behind your business, we will be in a position to structure bespoke funding to suit your needs. Having spent many years in the financial markets, our directors have deep knowledge of the internal processes at the different financing institutions, saving you time and money in the capital raising process.

Our directors have experience across new start-ups, project finance, expansion capital and capital & debt reorganisation.
