RAIZERS is a financing platform that allows you to raise funds from a community of 40,000 individual and professional investors in France, Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg, thanks to the authorisations issued by the financial markets authorities.

We present all kind of economical sectors, in particular on the following transactions:

  • Additional equity funding or refinancing of operations and support for the marketing of real estate developers' or property dealers' operations;
  • Purchase of real estate, mainly commercial and office space, for rental;
  • Financing of renewable energy production installations, involving local residents or not, in particular within the framework of tenders issued by the Commission de Régulation de l'Energie (CRE) with a bonus on the feed-in tariff;
  • Venture capital for startups with a possible long-term return (capital gain) with a minimum turnover of €200,000 over the last 12 months;
  • Financing of traditional SMEs (hotels, industry, luxury goods, etc.) with higher turnover if the activity already generates positive cash flows. 

We propose two types of financial securities :

  • The issue of a bond (debt), simple or convertible into shares, allowing the investor to benefit from an annual return (between 5 and 12%) over a limited period of time (up to 60 months). The investor has no right to control the development of the company and does not earn more than the expected return.

  • The acquisition of shares, ordinary or preferred ones, by investors. In this case, investors become shareholders and participate in the company's decisions to the extent of their participation. They can receive an annual dividend and benefit from a capital gain in the long term.

The entity to raise funds is either your company, the special purpose vehicle (SPV) or an adhoc investment holding company, whose creation we can take charge of.


Our prerequisites are as follows :

  • Experienced managers with no ongoing legal or recovery proceedings against them;
  • A company registered as a limited corporation (SA, SAS or SCA - regulatory obligation). We may be involved in the process of transformation (e.g. SARL/SPRL into SA).


Operations Selection Policy

1. Operation presélection 

Our team has implemented a financing request factsheet that allows you to provide us with all the information we need to know if we want to go further with your financing request (time to be expected <10 minutes).

2. Signature of Raizers services contract 

If the answers to the form correspond to the Raizers requirements, one of our account managers will contact you directly within 5 days maximum in order to contract our services. 

Raizers charges a variable remuneration on the amount raised, which may not exceed 10%. Raizers may also, depending on the estimated time required for the financial and legal structuring of the transaction, charge a fixed fee of up to €8,000/CHF prior to the campaign.

Finally, as part of the follow-up of investors in the event of an equity fundraising or in the event of the creation and administrative management of an investment holding company, Raizers will receive an annual fee of up to €8,000/CHF. The management of bond reimbursment is handled by Raizers.


3. Full audit

Once the contract has been signed, Raizers financial analysts carry out an in-depth study of the operator and the financing request, making it possible to assess its viability and relevance.

To this end, an exhaustive list of documents, listed in the contract, must be provided:

  • Elements related to the issuer: identity, list of legal mandates, curriculum vitae, etc;
  • Economic elements: marketing presentation, etc;
  • Financial elements: latest annual accounts, business plan, cash flow, etc;
  • Legal elements: organisation chart, extract from the commercial register, articles of association, shareholders' agreement, leases, compromises, building permits, etc.

This audit leads to the preparation of a financial report in a maximum of 10 days, which enables Raizers' management to issue a final favourable or unfavourable opinion, together with a proposal for a legal and financial package (shareholders' agreement clauses, valuation - rate, maturity, any guarantees associated with the loan).


4. Preparation of the legal documentation and online set up of the operation

In less than 48 hours, the Raizers teams establish the commercial supports that will allow our investment advisors to raise your funds:

  • Presentation content and memo of the operation;
  • Drafting of regulatory documentation;
  • Subscription form.


5. Fundraising and payment of the funds

Depending on the type of operation, it can last a few days (real estate) or several months (startup).

One of our investment advisors is dedicated to your fundraising. This one takes care of the follow-up of subscriptions and investment support. He also leads the online forum that allows you to interact with interested investors. If relevant, physical and/or virtual meetings are organised.

All investors must be registered and have provided their identity before they can view the company profiles on the platform.

At the end of the fundraising, if it is a success, we proceed to the legal closing of the transaction and we pay you the funds. These will have been recorded throughout the campaign in an escrow account opened in your company's name with our approved payment service provider MangoPay SA, a subsidiary of Credit Mutuel Arkéa.

If the objective is not achieved, all investors are reimbursed by Raizers. 


6. Monitor of the investment and reimbursment of investors if needed

After fundraising, you need to communicate regularly with your investors to keep them informed.

Raizers supports your company and provides you with a dedicated space on your profile where you will be able to inform your investors about the company's development by sharing the necessary documents whenever you want.

Raizers takes care of bond repayments, including tax obligations (flat tax, preparation of single tax forms, etc.).

We also provide, if necessary, support for the sale of securities in the event of capital raising (other rounds of financing, LBOs, initial public offerings).
