In 2001, the current private client business was established with the express intention to open up the world of investing in early stage companies to private investors.
At the time, private investors often only gained access once companies reached the listing stage, generally through an initial public offering (IPO). Typically, long before going public, many private companies received expansion capital through various sources including banks, fund managers, venture capitalists and angel investors. Early stage investment often offers higher potential returns to investors willing to take the inherent risk of investing into smaller companies.
Our Skills & Expertise
CSS Partners has been making early stage investments available to private investors since 2001, providing a service enabling individuals to assess both the upside potential against the risks involved.
The CSS Partners non-advisory service has been developed to provide what we feel is the highest level of support for investors, whether you are an experienced investor or looking at venture capital for the first time.
For almost two decades, we have been raising alternative investment capital and working in venture capital investment, providing companies with a balanced and clear understanding of each opportunity. Our service allows investors to ask questions, enabling them to make an informed decision when choosing where to invest. If there is anything that you’re unsure about with your investment, our transparent and approachable service makes us the perfect point of contact. Our service also means that we will keep companies fully up to date on developments as each investee company is contracted to provide updates to shareholders quarterly.
Every company we put forward has been through a diligence process and passed it, and our placing document will include a full explanation of the company, the product, their market and management expectations.
We only raise money for the companies that we want shares in, as we are in it together and have a major incentive to help companies succeed. At CSS Partners, we don’t directly charge our clients, so they receive the exact amount of shares equivalent to the amount invested.
For EIS shares or the SEIS scheme (Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme) if your company has been trading for less than 2 years, we can provide you with all the information you require. We can assist investors looking for high growth through convertible loan notes, which are otherwise known as short-term debts that can be converted into equity shares. When you initially speak to our team of professionals, who have generally been working in the industry for years, we will assist you in providing investors with the information they require to speculate and make informed decisions.
Don’t hesitate to contact our helpful and professional team to find out more about us. We are on hand for any questions you may have about CSS Partners.
