Welcome to Raising finance

Funding is vital to the success of any business – but how do you know which funding route is best for you?

When it comes to raising capital, the array of different options can take in everything from private equity investment and venture capital funding to bank lending and asset finance.

Assessing the options, making the right choice and, importantly, paying attention to the small print can make a major difference to the future of your business – and your role within it.

Having someone you can rely on to help you plot the right course on raising capital can therefore be invaluable.

With a seamless service which cuts across corporate, banking and commercial issues, we work with you to help ensure that raising finance does not make for rising blood pressure.

Thanks to our excellent working relationships with a wide range of different funders, we can help to introduce you to major players in the marketplace who you may not have previously considered.

Once you have all the options available to you, we can provide expert, unbiased advice on which route may be best for your business.

We will take time to understand the key drivers behind the transaction and provide early solutions to issues, working on your behalf to make sure the right deal is delivered.

Our partners are acknowledged as experts in their field and our approach is commercial and pragmatic.

This enables us to drive the process to completion on time and in a cost-effective manner, whilst causing minimum disruption to your business.
