Quantcast Asset-Backed | Businesses Seeking Funding | Downing


Supporting companies that trade from freehold property has been at the core of our business since its foundation. Particularly strong in care homes and leisure – hotels, pubs, health clubs & wedding venues – we have also successfully backed teams in children’s nurseries, schools and data centres.

We have funds readily available to support ambitious management teams looking to expand their business through new site development or by acquisition. A typical first investment might be in the range of £1m-£10m, but we have the appetite for – and track record of – making follow-on investments to continue backing teams in their growth.

We look to back experienced entrepreneurs to realise their ambitions. We have a personal, intelligent approach and our funding packages are tailored to meet the requirements of each deal. Having understood your business and your personal ambitions, we form long-lasting partnerships to achieve our shared goals.

We provide a full funding package, comprising debt and equity, allowing you to respond promptly to opportunities without the need to manage multiple funding partners. We have backed dozens of teams and developed hundreds of sites. We know what works.

If you have an opportunity you would like to discuss, we would love to hear from you.
