Business growth is not just about increasing business activity and making greater profits. It’s also about maximising the investments you make with those profits and securing the successful continuity of the business.
Corporate investment strategies
Most prudent organisations want to retain a healthy amount of capital within the business or charity to ensure a smooth cash flow, to act as security against unforeseen problems or bad debts and as available funds for future capital expenditure or strategic investments.
However, the current era of historically low interest rates mean that companies are struggling to obtain meaningful returns on cash deposits.
We're able to assist businesses in obtaining better returns on corporate funds and working capital.
We agree a clear brief in terms of what risk, if any, a business is willing to take and on the timescale for any investment. This allows us to shape the appropriate strategy, potentially using a mix of fixed term deposits, structured investment products and funds or bonds.
Wider corporate strategy
Working hand-in-hand with your accountants we are also experienced in helping a firm and its management develop an optimum approach to key corporate decisions. These might include whether and how to own commercial property where opportunities arise to acquire the business premises and on how to structure business sales or acquisitions in the most tax-efficient way.
