As a business becomes more successful, the need for an injection of capital increases or investors may seek to hedge their risks. When funds expand or existing assets mature, investors may look for new investment opportunities. Sophisticated investors who seek higher yields and diversified portfolios may look for exposure to a diverse range of asset classes, leverage, and bespoke features that meet their desired risk-and-reward profile. Whatever the objective of the business or investor, a range of financial products and transactions will be required.
