Corporate and project financing can be done with the client’s capital, FT Asset Management’s capital, funds financed through the client’s bank’s short-term financing, or any combination of the fore mentioned.
FT Asset Management works with a global network of buyers and sellers to take capital, initiate buy/sell transactions to produce more return on your investments. These funds are held in the client’s account with FT Asset Management and used to finance the project on an ongoing basis – with you in control and our team helping you and your idea come to fruition.
We know the buyers and sellers of the products for the fundraising transactions and even have backup buyers ready should the initial buyers not be available. All transactions initiated by us are managed, meaning we have signed contracts with all parties and all have been financially vetted.
Most companies do not go bankrupt because of bad management or lack of passion but because the results were not in line with the bank’s expectations when borrowing money. This can manifest into problems paying back the loan, increased interest rates, or both.
Wouldn’t it be better to have the cash upfront, ready to use for your project?
This is our specialization. We make sure you have the capital that you need when you need it. We do this by buy/sell transactions with our extensive network of buyers and sellers with signed contracts who are ready to do business.
Say you have a new project idea – a new R&D endeavor, a new wing to a building or perhaps a new city development.
The most common next step would be to talk with a bank and maybe they will work with you if your proposal fits their current plans.
Acquiring a new company is a huge undertaking; traditionally you would approach a bank or financier to discuss your plans for the new company acquisition.
You believe in the new venture, but will the bank? This is never a certainty.
Staying on the cutting-edge of your industry is vital for business growth and success. This relies heavily on research and development in a company.
Financing new product ideas to launch into the marketplace can be challenging with traditional bank financing.
Growth, innovation or starting a new project - they all cost money. There are a variety of ways to finance a project, each with their own pros and cons. Some of the more well-known methods include:
Using your or your company’s own capital
Pros: avoids increasing your debt; no interest charges on paying “yourself” back
Cons: decrease the value of your or your company’s assets and equity
Traditional bank loan financing
Pros: probably the most common method of financing; easily understood
Cons: access to this financing is never certain; payback will include interest and is expensive
Government grants or financial opportunities
Pros: grants generally gifts that require no payback
Cons: applying for government money is difficult and time-consuming; only projects that benefit the government are usually accepted
An angel investor
Pros: typically does not require shares or stocks in the company; can be an inexpensive method of financing
Cons: angel investors are difficult to find and difficult to engage; typically only for projects in excess of 10 million euros.
Pros: a popular and growing method of financing; payback usually includes stocks or shares in the company
Cons: the venture capitalists usually require a high-level of control and decision-making powers; can redirect the company’s direction and vision
Pros: a popular and growing method of financing; usually no payback required; leverages the internet to expand its many smaller investors
Cons: typically not enough money is generated to finance larger- or enterprise-sized projects; requires a high-level of engagement to attract potential investors
Selling stocks or shares in your company
Pros: generates capital without creating more debt; can increase the value of the company as see through the eyes of the general stock market
Cons: the ownership – and therefore some of the control – of the company is spread out over the stockholders; does not guarantee future valuable of the company; can decrease the value
