Jigsaw Capital specializes in financing businesses and UK entrepreneurs who find that business bank loans are difficult to arrange. We have access to private capital, more flexible in dealing with the various aspects of trade finance and the requirements of funding purchase orders. Private money often will do what banks won't or can't.
Accounts receivable finance (factoring) can certainly be arranged. Our finance partners can take on businesses, whether early stage or later, who need to offer terms to their customers and to free up their cash quickly after invoicing their customers.
Trade finance (purchase order finance) is now available. If your company receives a purchase order from a strong customer, we will be able to arrange payment to your supplier to enable you to meet customer demand without tying up your own money. This particular format generally suits products for which you have decent margins. If you have a foreign supplier, they would likely be paid with a letter of credit.
A trade facility can be provided in certain special cases. Such would be for an industry expert who has good contacts for both supply and distribution, and who may be looking to buy and sell goods independently. In such cases, one of our finance partners will consider backing the purchase and rapid re-sale of product lots. This will likely be possible for those who have opportunities to acquire discounted merchandise at good margins.
Paying suppliers against an incoming letter of credit is one more way in which we can assist UK businesses in their expansion. You may infer, correctly, that a large part of success in managing your business on the financial side is in how you structure your deals. With proper structure, much more is possible.
We at Jigsaw Capital can assist your business in two ways: arranging business finance, and in assisting you to structure your finance needs to fit what our finance partners are willing to do. Often, the right structure in your business deals will unlock the funding you may need, as private funders already have an excellent idea of what will work for them. Often, we are able to close financing after a review of the client situation to assess the line of least resistance for our funding partners.
