Challenges facing the market

Investment fund activity is subject to more rules and regulations than ever before, in the UK and overseas.

Once considered under regulated, the industry is now affected by a myriad of regulations and a swing back towards self-regulation based on a sense of responsibility is possible in the future. Devising the right strategy to support the delivery of your strategic goals can be both complex and challenging. You need advisers who are well versed in the detail, agile at times of change, whilst also understanding the mood of policymakers to explain how this might affect your investment funds strategy in the future.

In uncertain times, investor confidence can come under pressure and this can impact the entire marketplace.

Investors may need to rethink their investment strategy, exploring ways to maintain capital at reduced risk. Considering the investor audience carefully with intermediaries and investors or reviewing the deal flow if you’re raising money with investment restrictions will help protect investor confidence and maintain good relations.

How well are
you tackling the
cash flow challenge?

Cash is king when it comes to the financial management of any business, especially a growing one. Making sure the money you’re owed flows into your business is one of the greatest challenges of being commercially successful.
