SQN Asset Finance
Buchanan has been SQN’s retained financial adviser since before our IPO in July 2014. The Buchanan team has helped us shape our key messages and investment story and have been continuously proactive in introducing us to the ‘sell side’ research and media communities. We look forward to continuing to work with Buchanan and taking heed of the team's good advice as we continue to grow and meet our objectives.
Neil Roberts - Founder of SQN
SQN Asset Finance Income Fund Ltd invests in a diversified range of asset and equipment financings which are insulated from broader market conditions, in order to generate regular monthly income for investors.
Buchanan was appointed in 2014 for the £150 million flotation of the fund, which listed on the Main Market in July 2014.
During this phase, Buchanan worked with SQN management to develop a communications strategy to support the IPO, ensuring a healthy positioning of the Company despite a limited peer group.
The aftermarket outreach was facilitated though a proactive programme of relationship building with independent fund analysts and Private Client Brokers, coupled with an on-going PR strategy to build media profile for SQN in asset leasing press.
The Buchanan team continues to provide support and advice to the fund as it maintains its growth via fundraisings which are frequently significantly oversubscribed.
