Funding Advisory Services at Bishop Fleming 

Over the past 10 years the UK funding market has changed significantly. Gone are the days when there were just four main banks on the high street and private equity was the preserve of the largest business.

Confidence and liquidity abounds in a market that now includes multiple niche funders, internet and challenger banks, private equity for SMEs and, of course, a highly changed high street banking landscape.

The challenge is how to navigate the funding markets to find and access the right finance to grow your business. 

Through our own networks and partnerships, we can place finance into a multitude of situations from the simplest debt request through to the most complex including corporate refinance, growth and acquisition finance and where needed, distressed debt situations.

The funding market in the UK is continually changing and our team of experts have unmatched skills in supporting businesses in raising finance. Partner led and highly experienced, our team comprises corporate funding professionals and former senior bankers who have a wealth of experience in managing and sourcing finance for clients
