Could your construction business benefit from Private Equity Investment?

You may not have considered Private Equity (PE) investment for your construction business previously, but you might be interested to know that there is interest in the construction sector from a number of real estate focused PE funds who are looking to partner with regional housebuilders.


What does Private Equity Investment funding involve?

PE funds seek to provide the capital to accelerate growth in return for an equity share in the business. PE investment can provide the capital to enable you to take strategic positions on sites and feed the future pipeline. PE investors can help further professionalise your operation and help build the management team for a successful secondary exit.


Is PE funding right for me?

If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, then PR funding is something you might want to consider:

  • Are you looking to scale your business?
  • Are you under-capitalised to grow?
  • Is debt finance only getting you so far?
  • Are planning delays burning overheads and you need additional capital to expand?
  • Are you ultimately looking to exit and want to scale your growth alongside a partner?
