Corporate Finance

Whether yours is a new or a mature business, ensuring that you have the necessary finance is essential for achieving your objectives. Indeed, one of the most common causes of business failure is badly structured or inadequate financing.

We can help you:

  • Conduct a feasibility study of your projects
  • Decide on the most suitable sources of finance – personal capital, bank overdraft, long-term commercial loans and mortgages, national and regional agencies, venture capital, or equity capital
  • Prepare the necessary business plan, forecasts, prospectuses, etc.
  • Present your proposals to your chosen finance source
  • Arrange a disposal, merger/acquisition, or management buyout/in

Our expertise and contacts will help you open doors that may otherwise have remained closed for you.
