Aerospace and defense

We understand that this sector depends on the financial health of the world economy. Liquidity and cash preservation are critical as well as tight working capital management. Because we’re aware of the specific issues you face, we can provide you with tailored solutions to meet your needs.

We support a range of large and medium-sized manufacturers and suppliers to the aerospace and defence industries, many of which are key employers in the UK. Our financial solutions are tailored to focus on assisting you with your capital raising, risk management, supply chain finance, bid and performance bonding, fleet management and cash management needs.

With senior bankers in both London and the US we can serve the industry’s original equipment manufacturers, as well as essential providers further down the product chain. We aim to build long-standing relationships with you and your business, sharing our strategic insight to this sector and offering dedicated product support.
