Successful businesses often require external funding for a number of reasons, maybe to invest capital in growth opportunities, to make an acquisition or to release value to shareholders tied up in the business.


Perhaps you are looking to raise funds for the first time or maybe you’ve taken your business through this process before.  Either way there is a bewildering array of options available to you no matter what you are seeking capital for, whether it is private equity, venture capital, high street bank, mezzanine, debt funds, asset backed lenders, challenger banks, etc.

No two businesses are the same, and with the myriad of finance options available on the market, the challenge for business owners is to find the right funding package to suit their needs and ambitions.

At HMT, we have the skills and expertise to find the ideal funding option for our clients. Our corporate finance and debt advisory teams have accompanied many businesses at different stages to help them with fundraisings, from start-up companies like Channel Mum who we helped raise capital from both a corporate investor and private equity, to well-established businesses like Whistl who we advised on the funding package from RBS during the MBO process, through to Whittlebury Hall & Spa who we supported in raising funding from a challenger bank.

Our 25 years of experience has enabled us to have a deep understanding of the debt options available to our clients as well as building strong relationship with private equity firms, banks, high net worth individuals and other lenders. A hands-on understanding of a business owner’s strategy and aims is critical to matching with the most appropriate source of funding for that situation. The experience of each of the partners is of supporting clients through anticipating future economic conditions and delivering innovative solutions from an increasingly complex and diverse funding market.

What our clients say

HMT were very helpful throughout the process, taking us to see the right mix of lenders and helping to guide us at every stage.  Any time I had a question, their advice was always just a phone call away.  I would recommend their services to any Finance Director seeking debt for their business.
