Sovereign Group Partners LLP was formed in 2001 by former senior investment bankers who teamed up with Sovereign to provide corporate finance and fund raising expertise to a range of private companies that fall below the radar screen of the investment banks.
The primary aim of the business is to arrange equity and debt financing for private companies, typically in the range of US$2-30 million. This includes seed, start-up, other early stage and expansion capital financing, prior to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) and/or a trade sale.
SGP can demonstrate its commitment to clients by operating on a "success fee" basis for fund raising but, if preferred, will provide corporate advice and other consultancy services on a straight time-fee basis. SGP can also accept a mix of cash and equity for its services.
