Financing agreements

Very few companies survive without monitoring very closely their financial situation, which requires both rigor and proactiveness as far as their financing activities are concerned. In doing so, they often come up against tough and skillful negotiators.

These realities must convince business managers that they need the assistance of professionals who understand the complexities and pitfalls of the system. These professionals will have to balance their clients' financing needs and the risks associated with getting financing under unfair conditions.

Thanks to our multi-disciplinary approach and our business acumen and experience, we can provide you with valuable support. Indeed, we single-mindedly make sure that our clients benefit from the relationship they establish with their financial partners. We aim at establishing a well-balanced relation promoting good business, but also personal and family peace of mind.

  • Identification of suitable financing including subsidy programs, the traditional bank loan, subordinate financing, capital increase, factoring, leasing and vendor-credit;
