We can raise capital for FI’s (Financial Institutions) and we offer additional capital raising services, targeting larger deal sizes, with strong management teams, proper governance, and solid cash flows. Our financial solutions include: trade products (trade receivables discounting), working capital, senior secured debt, mezzanine, equity, and off-shoring solutions (corporate entities and trusts).
