Our Ethical Approach to Equity Finance

Equitable treatment of both parties

An investor’s capital should be treated as a priority, but not above all else. An investor shall not make guaranteed profits when the business does not.

No unfair liquidation preference

Investors and business are expected to share the impacts of ups and downs in business. An investor and entrepreneur should receive returns proportionately in the event of liquidation.

Efficient and Transparent Use of Funds

The founders should utilise the raised investment funds as proposed in the offer terms, focussing solely on growing the company's value and providing full transparency of its business operations and financials during the course of the investment period.
