SOLUTIONS

solution for professionals.

Our challenge

Our challenge

The private capital raising process hasn’t changed in over 30 years.

It is the lifeblood of our economy, yet investors and advisors still use outdated processes to screen and execute private placements.

Taking a deal from origination to close, whilst collaborating with multiple stakeholders, is a complex process. Countless emails, spreadsheets, documents and conversations are required for a single deal. Working manually, using disconnected tools, has significant hidden costs with wide economic implications.

Advisors focus on fewer deals, hire more staff to process manual tasks and lack the time and insights needed to analyse and develop their investor network. Fewer companies get funded, smaller deals neglected and more companies fail. Investors suffer lower returns with poor access to the deals most relevant to them.

Financial firms now realise the need to invest into technology to address these issues.

Private capital markets are entering a new era of efficiency and connectivity.

  • Single end-to-end solution to streamline the capital raising and distribution process

London Stock Exchange launches private placement platform (FT, April 2017)

Press Release

The Hub and London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE Announce Strategic Partnership.

London, UK, 6th April 2017: The Hub Exchange Ltd (The Hub), an innovative Fintech company based in London, is excited to announce a strategic partnership with London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSE) ELITE, its business development and capital raising platform. The Hub has worked with ELITE to refine its bespoke technology solution to power ELITE’s private placement platform, ELITE Club Deal, and to provide the technology infrastructure to support ELITE’s global partners that license ELITE Club Deal. As part of this partnership, The Hub secured a minority investment from ELITE*.

The Hub provides enterprise-grade platforms for leading investment networks. The strategic partnership enables The Hub to bring best practice with cutting edge technology to the private market, providing companies access to institutional capital. Each white label platform is completely private and can be deployed out of the box, or customised to client workflows. A key differentiator The Hub offers its clients is the connectivity and syndication opportunities to other leading investment networks. The Hub will also be an agent on the ELITE Club Deal platform providing investors, including HNWI and specialised funds, access to ELITE opportunities.

In November 2016, The Hub joined 12 other fast growing companies in the sixth cohort of LSE’s ELITE programme. The programme helps high growth organisations build a strong network of partners and advisers to support them in accessing suitable growth financing, be that through ELITE Club Deal, venture capital, private or public equity.

Axel Coustere and Stephen Ong, co-founders of The Hub, said: “We are extremely excited about our partnership with LSE’s ELITE and the opportunity to be the key technology partner for ELITE Club Deal’s global initiative. The partnership sets the standard for private market capital raising and provides the backbone for private investment networks to connect into. As each exchange crowns the end of the journey for private companies, our mission is to connect investment networks, currently operating in silos, from the early stage through to late stage, through our technology, globally.”

Luca Peyrano, CEO, ELITE, said: “ELITE and The Hub share a global vision of transforming the global capital raising environment. The Hub will allow ELITE Club Deal to power its platform with the best in class technology, supporting ELITE companies in efficiently connecting with growth capital, whilst giving investors the opportunity to have a stake in some of Europe’s most ambitious private businesses.”

* Launched by London Stock Exchange Group in April 2012, ELITE is a full-service programme designed to help the most ambitious companies prepare and structure for the next stage of growth through access to long term financing opportunities. It is a unique cross border programme based on an exclusive training and tutorship model, supported by access to the business and financial community. Today, more than 700 companies, advisors and investors make up the growing international ELITE community. Close to 500 ELITE companies in 25 countries from more than 30 sectors generate €40 billion in combined revenues and account for over 175,000 jobs across Europe and beyond.

ELITE Club Deal, the private placement platform for ELITE companies and professional investors, is the natural next step in the evolution of ELITE’s suite of services. ELITE Club Deal helps to bridge a funding gap and streamline the capital raising process for companies, bringing together investors, corporate advisers and growing companies in a secure and efficient environment.
