Services to lenders and investors

We provide fast, pragmatic advice to debt and equity providers in distressed scenarios.

Protecting your

We support funders at all stages of the funding cycle where financial distress is present.

Our approach has four central principles:

  • We are agile and can respond quickly to any scenario
  • We provide robust advice and pragmatic solutions rather than extraneous analysis
  • We seek to agree a remit at the outset which is focussed and proportionate in terms of time and cost
  • We strive for management buy-in and a consensual approach.

This approach enables us to give you realistic, actionable recommendations which either resolve the problem so that the capital risk is reduced or extinguished, or deliver an optimal exit, such as a refinance or restructuring.
