2 Key Types of Finance
Finance options can broadly be grouped into two categories, namely Equity Finance or Debt Finance.
In very simple terms Equity Finance typically involves a business selling shares to raise money whilst Debt Finance is where a business borrows money from a lender, and then pays it back with interest.
Lack of funding is increasingly a key reason why many businesses fail to scale and yet the correlation between those that secure the appropriate funding and their rates of growth is high.
Businesses that can’t access the right funding mix, as and when they need it, are unlikely to grow significantly.
By way of example, 75% of Scale Ups use external funding to fuel their growth plans.
Learn How To Access Business Funding Opportunities
Sadly many businesses lack the detailed knowledge of the different types of both debt and equity funding that are available. They consequently struggle to understand how to position themselves in order to make themselves attractive to those types of investors or lenders.
Another major challenge facing businesses seeking investment, and/or borrowing, is that they fail to demonstrate the necessary financial controls and commercial acumen to reassure the lenders/investors that they are a credible borrower.
The importance of having high quality, timely financial information and a real grasp of the organisation’s financial KPI’s cannot be overstated.
