Going For Growth

If you have plans to develop and expand we can help you. Our professional business advisers are specially trained to deal with the issues that confront established businesses. We have 30 years of experience in assessing the potential of businesses to develop and raise the necessary finance.

Planning for growth

We can help you develop a business plan aimed at raising finance to expand. By working with us to prepare a plan to raise expansion finance you will gain valuable advice in how to develop your business. Our aim is to steer you towards the most appropriate sources of finance for your business.

Access to finance

If we think your plan is viable and you can't find a commercial source of finance we will research sources of potential funding.
