Raising finance is, of course, a critical component requirement of all growing businesses. And financial structuring can be required at various points in a businesses life cycle, whether to support a planned period of growth or when a business encounters difficulties.

Equity & (Long Term) Debt
We can identify and harness the most suitable Corporate Financial advice and approach various potential sources of equity & medium-long term debt finance.
Working Capital Finance
To the extent not provided through a Debt/Equity package, this can be provided through Factoring or Invoice Discounting.
Factoring involves selling your invoices to a third party. In return they will process the invoices and allow you to draw loans against the money owed to your business. Essentially, these companies provide a debt collection and sales ledger management service. It is commonly used by businesses to provide working capital, improve cashflow or even to reduce administration overheads.
Invoice Discounting is an alternative way of drawing money against your invoices. However, your business retains control over the administration of your sales ledger and, unlike factoring, is not transparent to your customers and suppliers. As well as providing finance, it offers valuable support services and credit insurance.
So in addition to helping find funding solutions for specific projects or asset purchases, we can help with an holistic overview of the financial requirements of your business that will lead to a comprehensive funding solution.
