Equity investor in contrary to a bank don’t require a high collateral and don’t expect a regular credit re-payments, so liquidity is not crucial. The most important and absolutely required asset is a human factor. Presence of experienced managers in a project may outweigh the deficiency in current financial structure. Equity investor becomes a partner and he shares the risk of a failure together with an entrepreneur. Investor’s goal is totally convergent with the owner’s goal – investor gain profits jointly with the owner, simultaneously to the growth of the company, so generally in a growth period investor doesn’t gain any financial benefits from the company he invested in.
Investor earns ONLY when the owner does.
Equity investor put not only money to the business but also potential business contacts and other non material support that could help in growth and business development.
Equity investor calculates the risk carefully, he is demanding in return on investment rate but at the same time he is willing to accept disproportionately higher risk than bank institutions, so he is ready to participate in projects that can’t obtain a bank credit.
Capital provided by investor, generally is not charged with interest rates or any other costs. Sometimes provided capital is mixed and consists of debt and equity capital.
Equity investor is a patient and tolerant type.

Financial investor put funds into the business and acquire a proportional part of company’s equity. Investment agreement is signed which regulates a basic conditions of undertaking such as: time horizon, exit terms, etc. Time horizon is differential and vary depending on a sector, but usually it is about 4-6 years.
