What is Financing?

Financing recognises companies and institutions that have raised significant capital during the research period whether it be through corporate finance, the capital markets or fund raising.

This includes any significant raising of finance by a company within the sector, this can include corporate lending, funding rounds and equity and debt capital markets issues including share offers and bond issues. We will be specifically looking at high value deals; novel structures; and companies using (for them) new forms of financing such as high-yield bonds.


This research period has seen finance flow to retailers with organic, vegan, and cruelty-free product lines. This is in line with the wider societal efforts to deal with outstanding moral and environmental issues in production. 

Multichannel and omnichannel retailers have been favoured by investors along with  digital retail, beauty and grocery startups.

Strategic financial partnerships with a view to market expansions and market consolidation have also been seen with some retailers offering financial support to drone companies, possibly with the aim of diversifying their delivery options in the future.


This category highlights retail companies that have successfully drawn private funding for their expansion efforts.

This category features retailers that have successfully conducted investment rounds.
