Private Markets

Clients wishing to raise capital through Private Markets will benefit from Bluewater’s expertise and depth of investor networks that we have been developing over the years. Having discussed your requirements and understanding the nature of your business, we will work with you to structure your financial instruments and make sure the appropriate HNW, sophisticated, professional and institutional investors are reached.​


Accessing all the different pools of investor liquidity is not easy, especially since the structuring process of corporate debt funding in the UK has been overwhelmingly biased to favour large companies rather than SMEs over the last 20 years. This has forced smaller borrowers to seek alternative fund-raising options – however, Bluewater has successfully mapped out the routes into more flexible investor pools and can identify which routes into Private Markets are best for smaller borrowers.

The devil is in the detail so Bluewater will guide clients through the many currency, asset class, clearing and settlement requirements needed to allow the chosen funding vehicle to travel the shortest and most cost-efficient route to these relevant investor liquidity pools.

The UK remains an attractive place to do business and many investors across the globe seek to take advantage of our stable, growing economy and the alternative investment opportunities presented here. Bluewater has developed a global network and presence and has helped local clients raise capital from Europe, Asia and Africa.
