  • Construction Finance: Funding Challenges & Solutions

    Securing mainstream construction finance was never a simple enterprise, but it’s actually getting harder. This is especially true in the UK, where scrutiny from lenders has intensified over recent years, making it trickier and more time-consuming than ever for construction firms - even those with a healthy order book and a history of sound financial conduct - to secure the finance they need to grow.

  • Engineering Finance: Which Funding Option Is Right For Your Business?

    The success of your engineering business often comes down to getting the right funding at the right time. Should you invest in sales or technology? Have you identified new products or new economic territories? What are your funding options and how should you be using them?

    UK engineering firms are continually praised for their engineering excellence and there is a strong tradition to maintain. Current engineering feats like Crossrail, Leeds’ new £45m flood alleviation scheme, the new Forth road bridge and the Olympic Stadium show that British engineering ability is still as innovative today as it was in the time of Brunel.

    But it isn’t without its difficulties and finding appropriate finance is often at the very heart of meaningful progression and innovation.

    There is a real need for flexible finance to react to the changing market conditions, which includes the current uncertainty of an EU trade deal as well as the opening up of other overseas markets.

    If you’d like to understand whether you want to invest in commercial property, you need a clear distinction on what a commercial property is, how it will be developed and whether you can afford to purchase it. Then, you need to consider whether taking commercial development finance is right for you and if the economic forecast makes it a good time to invest.
