Debt advisory - Crowe Ireland

Debt advisory

Helping clients access the right funding options with independent advice from experts who understand your business.

Access to adequate funding is important for all businesses. In today’s challenging marketplace, ensuring alignment of a company’s funding solutions with its strategic ambitions is critical.

In recent years, the debt markets have evolved considerably, with a wide variety of funding options available including senior, subordinated and mezzanine debt, and venture and private equity funds. As a result, navigating the debt markets has become increasingly challenging and time consuming.  

Our independent team has a well-established track record of helping SMEs secure funding lines. Using our extensive market knowledge and longstanding relationships with the major debt providers, we can guide our clients through the process to help ensure a positive outcome.

How we can help

As experienced debt funding advisors, we can help clients understand and assess the range of options available to find the optimum funding structure for their particular needs. 

We can advise on the most efficient way to structure debt, find the optimal funding solution and guide clients through the process, from initial feasibility through to successful deal completion.

We can support you in preparing a professional and robust funding application pack incorporating all of the information a funder will require. In doing so, we will constructively challenge your assumptions to ensure they stand up to scrutiny. This will strengthen your application and shorten the credit analysis period to get a swift and positive decision. 

The range of services we provide includes:

  • Developing and executing funding strategies for each stage of the business, from start-up to growth to maturity
  • Advising on the different funding options available in the current market
  • Refinancing, restructuring or recapitalisation strategies for existing debt
