A Service from Linear Partners
Linear’s extensive client base together with the enormous experience and contacts of our team allows us unparalleled access to a network of corporate and high net worth investors all looking for the right opportunities for investment.
We offer a cap-intro service introducing investors to suitable, risk appropriate investment.
What we offer
Our network of contacts spans the banking world internationally but we have a particular focus on the London and key European markets as well as the Far East, especially in China and Japan. While we do not normally seek investors from the on shore US market as this can cause complications for our introduction clients – we do have a chaperone agreement in the US which allows us to approach US investors.
Our aim is to raise the investment in conjunction with you. Usually several investors will be required since most will only invest a proportion of the needed funds to manage their risk and comply with their own procedures. We will agree to raise a part in cooperation with you or other fund raisers working with you.
Investors and services
Our investor base includes pension funds, institutions, family offices, fund of funds, endowments, foundations and H&UHNW investors. Our services include one-to-one meetings with selected investors, industry conference participation, content driven round table discussions, investor road shows, online portals and targeted calling.
We have an extensive and highly experienced team. We would be happy to advise you on issues concerning the offering such as price and terms to help raise the required investment on the best possible terms. Our team is used to unusual deals and can be extremely flexible and employs lateral thinking in our approach.
Support with documents
Our team can also provide advice and assistance with the documents required for the fund raising.
