When you invest in equity you buy a percentage or share of a business in the hope that the value of that company will increase over time. Hopefully the business you have backed goes on to make an ‘exit’ at a higher value than when you invested, and you will get a return on your investment and make a profit. Please be aware, investments of this nature carry risks to your capital.
