Why you should employ a corporate finance expert

04/06/2019

If you’re looking to grow your business - whether through acquisition; investment in new plant or property; or developing new products or services – financing your ambitions is critical.  And that isn’t just about finding funds - you need to make sure that your plans are viable and that your funding sources are supporting your longer-term business needs.

Whether you are looking for a business loan or an investor, it takes watertight figures and a robust approach to maximise your likelihood of success.  Even if you are successful, you need to be sure that funding that meets your short-term requirements doesn’t end up causing you trouble later on.

For all of those reasons, it makes sense to bring in a corporate finance specialist to guide you through this complex field and help you to achieve the best outcomes.

Making sure your business dreams can become a reality

It is wonderful to have ambitious dreams for your business, but in the cold light of day you might wonder if these dreams can become a reality.  A financial expert can assess the risks to achieving your targets; can look at how small changes in your forecasts might impact on your outcomes and cash flow; and, ultimately, challenge whether your plans for a bigger business are likely to mean not just bigger but better.

Bringing technical know-how to your business

Nobody knows your business as well as you.  But a corporate finance specialist can bring a wealth of financial expertise to help inform and support your plans.  The specialised area of financial modelling plays a significant role in everything from forecasting future cash flows to coming up with a valuation for your business and is critical in business acquisition negotiations. Your corporate finance advisor can provide insight into which equity and investment models potential backers are likely to be using, helping you to shape a business case that is most likely to appeal to them.

Reaching out to a wider audience

Your local high street bank may be able to help you with a business loan – but a corporate finance specialist can access a range of loans and deals and save you hours of searching.  If you are looking for investment, a corporate finance specialist can help you to access a network beyond your own network of business contacts, family and friends.

Being a critical friend

From producing a business plan to perfecting your pitch, a corporate finance specialist can be a ‘critical friend’ – providing support, mentoring and coaching based on an in-depth knowledge of what lenders and investors are looking for.  Helping you to land the deal that you, and your business, are really looking for.
