“Knowledge is power” – Francis Bacon
ZED Financial Partners is a boutique investment bank headquartered in Toronto, Canada specializing in raising debt, equity and strategic investments.
ZED has developed a tightly focused approach to raising capital as opposed to the traditional “shotgun” approach. We identify upfront which funds have previously completed a deal in a particular sector, therefore they have the knowledge of a company’s products, its potential and the sector. Our process is driven by our proprietary and highly detailed database in which it profiles over 1,500 private equity funds and 400 debt providers and tracks all of their completed current and past deals.
This allows us to identify funds that better understand the product and potential of a company and allow the process to be more efficient, given that you are not wasting a lot of time educating a fund on the industry, the investment opportunities and / or technology. Because of the funds knowledge, they would be able to bring more to the table than just money, by bringing strategic knowledge, access to markets and experience (i.e. “Knowledgeable Capital”).
Transactions will only be presented to this limited, pre-qualified subset of knowledgeable investors, which leads to a better understanding of the opportunity presented and consequently more closed transactions.
Knowledgeable Capital© brings more than just money to the table; it brings access to markets, synergistic technology, customers, distribution, joint venture opportunities, etc.
