Unlock Opportunity in Your Business

Whether your business is growing, acquiring, evolving, or even facing challenges, there is always one critical piece of the puzzle:

Capital.

In the current environment however, access to capital is tighter than it used to be, bankers often don’t understand their clients’ businesses.
Business owners know that with the right financiers by their side, managing their business would be far less stressful and they could even improve the value of their business by taking it to the next level.

A Specialist Approach Delivers Results

The biggest inhibitor that we see in businesses looking to borrow or raise $3 – 100m, is that they don’t know how best to source, negotiate and structure their debt & equity capital needs, or how to pull the right strings with bankers or investors. The reason why this happens is that, as a business owner or CEO/CFO, they may be leaders in their field; but they’re not bankers or financiers.

Leveraging our significant experience and deep relationships in Capital Markets, we structure and source debt, equity and hybrids for our clients, typically businesses turning over $5m to $200m who are working to take their business to the next level.

Working through a defined and detailed process, we achieve results for our clients that fit with their strategic goals and imperatives, which in turn allows them to achieve the results that they are working hard for.

And we’re not just finance brokers. We provide our clients with strategic advice and we access capital from sources that include Banks, Fund Managers, Bond Writers and Ultra-High-Net Worth Individuals.

In my experience with finance brokers, they try and sell you a product. But instead, STAC put themselves in our position; the fact that we could stay with our original bank saved us from a painful experience. Now I think the world is our oyster.
— WESLEY RAND, FOUNDER & CEO, FIENZA

A Strategic Partnership with STAC Capital

While the structuring and arrangement of finance is very much core to our business, our approach is different to that of typical finance brokers.

  • Our Directors are actively involved with the owners, key management and external advisors of each of our clients.

  • We are fiercely independent and loyal to our clients, with a pricing model that ensures we are wholly aligned with our clients’ interests, free of conflict with any particular lenders or investors.

  • We understand the true meaning of strategy and therefore take the time to clearly understand all the factors that make up our clients' strategy, and work with them to continue to build it.

  • We are transparent in everything we do.

  • We are not single deal focused. We value long-term mutually-beneficial relationships with our clients.

Your full financial situation will need to be reviewed prior to acceptance of any offer or product.
