Sasfin – Raising the right kind of Capital


By: Megan Young, Corporate Finance Transactor, Sasfin Capital

In today’s market where trends change daily due to global market volatility, business owners are now, more than ever, in need of a long-term trusted adviser. The trade has many advisers who do not partner long-term with their clients and who avoid taking on deal risk, which can leave a business owner wanting when identifying a long-term partner.

Raising capital is one of the most popular and valuable ways of growing your business. Specialist corporate advisers look at the universe of potential investors and match the right investor(s) with your company. The prospective adviser would gain a deep understanding of your business, strategy and objectives and, through a rigorous screening process, identify the right investor for your business.


Despite the current financial climate, corporate South Africa and South African private equity firms are awash in liquidity seeking a home. There is a huge demand for quality investments with very little supply. This places you in a particularly strong position to optimise the value for your business. In addition, the right corporate adviser has an extensive database of local and international firms and private equity funds with capital to invest in value propositions.
