How David is building a better working world

The lifeblood of growth companies is access to capital. Opportunistic equity and debt raises allow management teams to pursue bold projects and transformative acquisitions, creating larger, more diversified businesses — enhancing shareholder value and decreasing enterprise risk. Access to capital can drive the development of more advanced products and service offerings, which in turn creates value for a company’s shareholders, customers, employees, and the market in general.The EY Equity Capital Markets Advisory team helps raise this capital more efficiently — reducing costs, mitigating risks and allowing EY clients to focus on the aggressive pursuit of growth strategies that help create a better working world.
