Delivering Financial and Intellectual Capital as a Force For Good
“Cyan is the go-to finance house for companies and organisations in the green, sustainable and socially positive economy and is sub-sector agnostic”
What makes us different from most is that we are focused on getting capital into the sectors and companies we support.
We’re proud to put our own balance sheet to work and we currently have a perfect track record of deployment and recovery, something which we attribute to our culture and belief systems which drive our processes, as well as operating in sectors which are on the right side of history.
We deploy our money across the capital structure. We have expertise in debt, equity and everything in between including asset finance, venture debt, and contract and receivables funding.
Our straightforward process enables clients to speak to decision makers at an early stage.
We like to meet with our clients and their management teams and aim to add value in the solutions we create and offer.
When we solve problems we provide more than just money
As an integral part of our social purpose, Cyan provides corporate finance advice and access to the wider capital markets. If we think your business or project could exist in the world that we want to see then we will work to help that happen.
Whether raising equity or debt, selling or buying a business, evaluating or restructuring an existing capital structure, or anything else, clients find in Cyan a mission aligned finance house whose passion and authenticity drives client success.
The believers who make up the Cyan team have many decades of transactional experience totalling billions upon billions of dollars of transaction value.
Where engaged in regulated activities, Cyan Finance operates as an appointed representative of a principal firm authorised by the FCA.
If you have watched ourthen you will already have a sense of who we are. We’re the financial institution for the future. We are fast-moving and flexible. Like a bank, but better.
We have a strong balance sheet which we actively put to work and unrivalled investment banking capabilities.
A relationship-based approach to banking
We take a relationship-based approach to banking. We are long term thinkers and that shows through in our approach, whether that is addressing the long-term sustainability of our economy or building long-term sustainable relationships with clients.
How can we help?
We are always asking “How can we help?”. In the case of our clients this means taking the time to understand and evaluate their needs, their businesses, their capital structure and so on in order to deliver solutions.
Of course part of our process is judging whether or not a client is aligned with Cyan. We can’t work with everybody and unfortunately there are still far too many businesses and business models which Cyan doesn’t support.
A force for good
We are focused on delivering our social purpose, and channelling capital as a force for good, but we are also pragmatic realists.
Your business, organisation, or project does not need to be saintly but in general we will need to judge that in some way it contributes to the more efficient use of energy or resources, the decarbonisation of the economy, sustainability or does some social good.
We are open-minded so if in doubt please get in touch.
Cyan were instrumental in the success of the business over the last year. They quickly put together a creative solution which fit what we were looking for, and enabled us to grow our balance sheet and profits much more quickly than would have been the case without their help.
They’re unique in that they get involved in the sustainability community at grass roots level, and in our case took the time to learn about our business and the sector.
We’re very happy to have Cyan as a long-term partner and shareholder. Before I started the business I worked in corporate finance and Cyan really are a breath of fresh air compared with what I had grown used to working for small and medium sized sustainability companies.
Our experience working with Cyan Finance was a seamless process and provided the capital we required when we required it. The transaction rapidly moved from discussion to deployment and it was a pleasure working with their team!
I would highly recommend Cyan Finance as a company to provide your business capital requirements.
Rapid access to flexible financing solutions is more important than ever to support the growth of the companies providing commercial solutions to the challenges of climate change, clean air and resource scarcity. Cyan provide a complimentary offering to Sustainable Ventures’ Innovation Services in R&D Tax Credits and Grant Writing support, providing advanced funding that allows clients to accelerate progress and increase the value of their companies.
Working with Cyan has been fantastic for our Seed-stage, social-impact focused finTech business. The team has been engaged and creative in delivering a solution balancing finance, growth and flexibility. Cyan is an ideal partner for this stage of growth and our focus on meaningful innovation.
The additional working capital this provided was really useful to us. Cyan were easy to work with.
We would recommend Cyan to anyone else considering financing.
Whether you are interested in joining us, working with us, partnering with us, discussing new opportunities, or anything else, if you feel you are aligned then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Please note that we choose not to work with recruiters but are happy to accept speculative applications directly.
You may already be in finance and looking to transition into a role where you can contribute to doing good. We understand that we are different and that people may not have had the opportunity of a platform like Cyan before, but please note that authentic belief in what we do is a pre-requisite for us in any hiring.
