Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.

As a highly experienced commercial banker with a reputation for taking a practical and pragmatic approach I am dedicated to helping business owners get, and keep, finance on the best possible terms.

I use over 33 years banking experience to help businesses raise finance and work with them to maintain it at the right levels.

In my experience many businesses rely heavily on finance and would have all sorts of problems if it was curtailed or even removed. Business owners often complain that banks often overreact to surprises, problems or bad news by pushing borrowers into “intensive care” for what could appear to be minor reasons. The fallout from this can be very stressful, costly and time consuming.

I help business manage how their actions and/or results will be interpreted by the bank to try and avoid any over reaction.

Maintaining your banking relationship and having the right finance, on the right terms, requires:- time, effort, organisation, planning, skill, knowledge creativity and determination.

If you do not have the skills to deal with lenders properly then please get professional help. In today’s world you cannot afford to be amateurish in the way you deal with your finances.

Our clients typically
• pay lower fees
• pay lower interest rates
• provide lower personal guarantees or personal security
• have fewer issues at annual review
• spend less time working for the bank and more time on their business
