Specialized Services for Information Technology Businesses

Our understanding of Knowledge-Based Industries (KBIs) extends to our knowing that IT businesses are unique and have their own special needs from a financial institution. In response to this, we have created a business life cycle approach to KBIs:

Life Cycle Approach

  1. Through partners, we are reaching out identifying and nurturing technologies with company creation potential
  2. You're experiencing rapid growth and need expert advice and services to help you manage
  3. You need a financial partner with a global network of services and contracts
  4. You need an expert team to help you access capital markets

Just Starting Out? We're playing a key role in helping engineers and developers bring technologies to market by bundling seed and venture capital, business and technology management expertise and access to our vast network.

Rapid Growth? If your business is experiencing the stunning growth that comes with early success in IT sectors, we offer a wide selection of innovative products and services geared to your needs.
