Owners of trading businesses suffer without adequate capital backing. In particular, if rely too much on asset-backed lending.
The good news is that there are a number of funding options available for these owners. These options are not as cheap as bank debt, but they do provide a medium to long-term funding solution, and allied with a sound growth strategy, should allow the business to grow sufficiently to more than justify the extra cost for the owner.
The bad news is that there are a lot of businesses competing for this funding, and the managers of this money have very high standards and expectations regarding information flow, internal controls, etc.
We help our clients by having direct lines of communication into the key people at these funders and by having a deep understanding of their expectations throughout the process to completing the fund raising.
In particular, we work very closely with the Business Growth Fund which has been specifically established to invest £5-10m in growing businesses.
