What Does A Commercial Loan Brokerage Do?Here's What You Need To Know
A business financing advisor in Canada may well never be needed by your company, but that is provided that you and your team know everything about business financing in Canada, have credible funding sources, as well as having all the time in the world to explore traditional and alternative business finance solutions to run and grow your company !
Most business owners and their financial mgrs would agree there is significant value in not wasting internal resources and people time when you are looking for business financing when you lack all the experienced need to close on business finance needs.
Over time, and trust us we don’t know why, we have come to dislike the word ' loan broker ' , ' business loan broker ' etc . In reality we confess at the same time that we see everyone uses a mortgage, insurance or other type of broker to get a qualified, credible ' best deal '. So the middleman approach clearly has value to the consumer. Does it have value to a business? We think so, and at 7 Park Avenue Financial we've proven to hundreds of clients that we have a track record of business finance success.
Businesses require financing needs are in various stages of their life history; they might be in ' hyper growth ' mode , or at the unfortunate opposite end of the spectrum ' financial distress '. In some cases firms might be looking to complete business acquisition financing , or to augment their working capital and cash flow facilities . Revolving business lines of credit are often needed in order to finance the build up of accounts receivable and inventories as your sales grow.
All of the above types of business finance need the right data, help and expertise to identify the solutions best fitted to your firms needs. We always point out to clients that there is no ' one size fits all ' and in fact many industries require specific types of financing .
You could make a case that a good business finance loan advisor is in fact a ' business doctor ' of sorts , recommending and executing on the right ' cure ' for your business finance needs.
The right business loan advisor firm will allow you to get the answers you need on business finance solutions that fit , and , even more importantly pinpointing finance alternatives that your firm may not be aware of , or had not considered.
Naturally there are some that might tell you they can assist in those business finance solutions but in fact might not know of what they speak ! Therefore the right choice of Canadian business financing advisor can make or break your success in Canadian business financing for new or refinancing capital.
