Financial Modelling and Forecasts

Now more than ever, companies depend on models to make critical financial and business decisions. Whether you are raising finance, acquiring or divesting, assessing strategic options or simply planning for the future, you are going to need a forecast and this is likely to come from a financial model.

Raising Debt and Equity Investment

For businesses to operate effectively, the right funding mix is crucial. External finance can support your business’s operations, accelerate growth, and help realise the value built in your business. It is essential for working capital and growth capital, for acquisitions, refinancing and cash outs.
