Refinancing is the process by which a client can use their existing assets to raise additional capital for a number of purposes, these assets can be unencumbered (free from finance).

By releasing capital tied up in fixed assets we can help improve cash flow and stability for a client. Funds can be used to recover from bad debt, improve cash flow, reduce bank overdrafts or to restructure existing agreements and release the equity.
