Raising finance in the construction industry

Raising finance is necessary within the construction industry, and with the right resources, it can be a swift process. Favourable credit profiles are essential, as they are used during the funding approval process to assess lending risks.

Your risk banding affects the interest rates and terms you will be offered. Knowing and improving your credit profiles across the credit rating agencies could benefit your business.
