We have a wide range of experience and industry contacts and this gives us a strong insight into what is available in the market place, and we are constantly horizon scanning and working with lenders to ensure we have a sound breadth and depth of product and market knowledge.


We combine our market knowledge with a systematic assessment of your current situation and your desired outcome. Based on this we will provide you with initial options for funding and if you are happy with them you can proceed through a full application, at all times it is your decision to progress with the funding and you should obtain advice from your advisors, for instance your accountant and solicitor on whether they agree on the proposed funding structure.
