Equity Finance

Equity finance is useful for developers who require further funds. Also known as developer equity finance or joint venture financing, equity finance allows investors and funds to top up the money needed to finance a development project. This means the developer can proceed without the need to self-fund or pull cash from other projects.

Equity finance for residential and commercial properties

Developer equity finance can be used for residential and commercial development projects. It is often used when developers are working on several projects at the same time.

How does development equity finance work?

Development equity finance usually works by the creation of a joint venture profit share agreement. The investing partners will require a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) in order to protect their return on the investment as agreed with the developer. The business arrangement between the developer and equity investor includes regular project updates. The profits from the sale of the development are distributed on completion of the sale. Some equity providers may require a personal guarantee but not all.
