SINCE THE "BANKING CRISIS" THERE HAS BEEN CRITICISM OF THE BANKS FOR THEIR RELUCTANCE TO LEND - ESPECIALLY to smaller businesses. The fact is that the criteria they're using is more demanding than in the past. They need to be even more confident that any business they lend to has the strong financial management to enable them to meet their repayments. In short, businesses need to make themselves a more attractive, "safer bet"! 

That's why we've developed our Access to Finance programme to help businesses and organisations with:

Implementing the financial planning, controls & management to give the lenders the confidence they need;

Getting the funding they need to finance their plans, and from the right source(s);

Developing and using those financial & business management controls to help them achieve their plans.  


It is nice to deal with a Consultant Finance Director who not only possesses a sound technical ability but also the commercial awareness that is lacking in some organisations.
