What We Do: We specialise in working with owner-managed businesses who are raising finance, for example to:-
• Provide working capital to fund growth, finance large orders or get through a lean spell
• Support export sales or import products/raw materials
• Buy property for business use or for property investment/development
• Acquire another business or for new plant and equipment
• Extra cash to cover losses from bad debts, slow paying customers or economic downturn
• To refinance or switch banks - either for better terms or because their bank relationship has soured
• Specialist finance that doesn’t suit the banks' criteria
Business Sector: Business Finance
Expertise: Business finance; Borrowing from banks; Negotiating with banks; Working capital; Import/export finance; Asset & property finance; Switching banks; How banks assess borrowers; How banks analyse lending risk; Communicating with lenders; How business banking works; Renegotiating existing borrowings; Dealing with bank "intensive care" departments; General business advice.
Problems we solve: Our clients typically feel frustrated that they have little control or influence over lending decisions made behind closed doors, are concerned that they may be refused finance or not get the right terms or being let down by the bank at the last minute.
My banking experience makes me very effective in this role, regardless of the financial climate.

The rest of the time I spend advising and supporting business owners on other borrowing matters - for example the annual renewal of their facilities or when lenders are causing them problems by cutting back on agreed lending limits or maybe demanding more security. I also help businesses that have been put into their bank's "intensive care" department
Offerings: Assistance in finding the right lenders and the right financing package for your business
