    Our approach involves a thorough understanding of your business and market to ensure your financing request resonates with potential lenders. We prepare detailed proposals and financial models to negotiate favourable terms and introduce you to suitable, well-vetted lenders, managing the process from start to finish.

  • What are debt covenants?

    Debt covenants are terms set by lenders to ensure borrowers maintain certain business practices, which help secure loan repayment. These can be obligations you must meet or actions you must avoid. Our role is to negotiate covenants that are fair and maintainable, providing confidence to both you and the lender.

  • What happens if I trigger a covenant breach?

    If a covenant breach occurs, the resolution will depend on your relationship with the lender. Ideally, issues are resolved through partnership discussions to address and remedy the situation. However, if challenges arise, we stand ready to assist in negotiations, manage any surprises, and, if necessary, help you transition to an alternative lender swiftly.
