Back in the Zone

Breathe Cashflow

Back in the zone and fresh from our winter trail successes, we have spent January channelling our competitive energies into new and smarter assignments for our clients and for them to potentially consider alternative funding options. Psychologically, the first month of the year can be a tough one so we've been busy ensuring the pipeline is maintained and momentum continues as businesses weigh up their all-important year ahead.  2017 will be another volatile year as political and economic uncertainties continue to underpin the new world order. Business confidence will be a leading barometer to whet or suppress the appetite for SME growth and to therefore consider alternative funding options. Our market will continue to seek innovation amidst the backdrop of a continued benign credit environment, but the spectre of rising inflation as the value of sterling declines and Brexit floundering, remains a worry. People’s real incomes are being affected, jobs are being moved out of the UK and investments delayed.  Meanwhile our government has pledged a “radical” boost to the UK’s housing supply alongside the pledge of a million new homes by 2020. We await with eagerness to learn more and the impact it will have on sector business productivity. 

The Cashflow Contenders

Breathe Cashflow

Our alternative market has just got a whole lot more congested with many players looking to join, gate crash or seduce an already bustling party. So that’s why we want to spend the next few months concentrating on a handful of carefully selected funders within our panel to offer the kind of refreshing, savvy solutions to those type of businesses and sectors that Breathe want to support here in the Thames Valley. We will be actively promoting our identified funders in our region over the next few months, chosen for the variety of sectors they specialise in, their professionalism and close working relationship with us, as well as their due diligence when the industry is facing increased scrutiny. Watch this space for our exciting plans to further strengthen our profile in the region and promote even greater awareness the services these companies offer.

January Projects

Breathe Cashflow


The recent cold snap has given us all a greater appreciation of the benefit of a decent place to call home. Our latest assignment has seen us working closely to provide a smarter cashflow solution for a construction business undertaking crucial contracting work to ensure council and housing association properties are meeting the government's Decent Homes Standard program. We've matched them with an innovative and commercially focused specialist lender who will help relieve their cashflow pressure points during the forthcoming months.


We all love a referral here at Breathe. It makes us feel especially proud that our name is getting out there and reaching new audiences each month. So we have pulled out all the stops to give this small construction business the benefit of our expertise in evaluating their cashflow options and introducing comparable funders to specifically match their requirements. Having worked tirelessly to secure their key customer, it's all been about the relationship and respecting the onward sensitivities of such an arrangement.
