Accessing funding for your business – or unlocking capital within it – is important not only to the function of your organisation but also your growth.

Choosing the right source of funding is one of the greatest challenges for businesses seeking finance: from capital markets, capital raisings and private equity, to managing debt facilities and releasing excess levels of cash tied up in working capital. The options are vast, and the combination of which funding packages you access can be complex and dependent on your circumstances, ratings and strategic ambitions.

Our Grant Thornton finance and funding team works across all industries on accessing their sources of finance – both from inside the business as well as from external providers. We help you weigh up all the factors and identify the right choice for your business, and help you present your case to potential funders and negotiate the funding for a long-term sustainable relationship.
