Raising Finance

From developing your business plan through to identifying potential funders, we think you won’t come across a more straightforward approach to raising finance than at Harlands.


When it comes to raising finance, we’re certainly not afraid to get stuck in and negotiate the best possible deal, but we won’t wrap things up in an unnecessary mystique – we’ll just tell you how it is.

Raising Finance is one of those areas where who you know is almost as important as what you know.  Fortunately, our specialists know an awful lot of people/institutions and bring great technical knowledge and experience too.

Particularly in the current economic climate, things are changing all the time in terms of what finance is available and who’s prepared to lend or invest.  We keep on top of all these developments so you can be sure you’re getting access to the best sources of finance available.
