The report offers a wide-ranging view of the market for equity investment in smaller businesses, covering:
- the reasons for seeking equity
- recent trends
- longer-term features and market failures
- exits and returns
- the role of Government institutions.
The ‘Equity Tracker’, published alongside the report, brings together investment from different sources (such as funds, angels, and crowdfunding platforms) into a ‘whole of market’ view of early-stage equity investment.
An additional equity crowdfunding report represents a separate strand of the Equity Tracker project, which utilises the detailed data for a ‘deep dive’ into one aspect of the funding environment.
The report, tracker and equity crowdfunding report can be downloaded below.
