What is an Investment (or Investor) Memorandum?

Investment memorandums are documents that provide potential investors with information about a company and its investment opportunities. 


These documents typically include an overview of the company, its financials and operations, competitive edge, and growth opportunities. The memorandum also contains a description of the proposed investment, including terms, expected returns, and risks. It is important for potential investors to read and understand the contents of the investment memorandum before making any decision. 


They are usually prepared by the company’s investment bankers, who have a fiduciary duty to ensure that all information is presented accurately and fairly. It is important for potential investors to ask questions and seek additional information to understand the investment opportunity thoroughly. 


The information contained in the memorandum may be used by potential investors to make an informed decision about whether or not to invest in the company. 


The memorandum should be reviewed carefully and all questions should be answered before any decision is made. This will help ensure that potential investors have all the necessary information to make an informed decision.


Startups that are keen to raise investment typically prepare such documents and hand them over to potential investors to be taken more seriously. Hence the reason why we prepare them on our client’s behalf. We have a couple of samples on our website here.
