Sourcing and securing capital has become a very complex task for many businesses. Capital is scarce, expensive and often accompanied by pre-conditions and non-performance penalties. Yet it is also vital to the survival of most businesses, not just at start up but to fund growth and expansion.

Here at HLB McKeogh Gallagher Ryan our advisory team has worked with many of our clients – during the boom and in today’s leaner times – to identify the most appropriate form(s) of funding and project manage the fundraising process.

When devising the optimum funding mix of debt and equity we use our relationships with banks, private investors, venture capitalists, private equity houses or state agencies to recommend the most cost effective and commercially appropriate form of funding.
