Private Banking for entrepreneurs
A decade ago, most of our Private Banking clients inherited their wealth. Today the majority have made it – many from companies they have founded or acquired, built and sold.
At Barclays, we appreciate that every stage of the business lifecycle presents a different set of financial challenges. Whether you are in the initial stages of building your business, are looking for funding to grow the business, are contemplating selling, or even if you are considering passing the business to the next generation, we can act as your trusted advisor.
Turning dreams into reality
Every start-up faces its fair share of barriers. Our Private Bankers can assist with raising capital to grow your business and turn those dreams into reality. For serial entrepreneurs looking for new business opportunities, we can orchestrate the best methods to secure finance if your wealth is tied up in your existing business. We can also provide guidance on how to gain market share and enhance the future value of your firm.
For most, selling a business is a life-changing, once-in-a-lifetime event. There is no dress rehearsal. Various stakeholders - private equity investors, accountants, lawyers - all drive to close a sale, yet none directly represents you and your family's interests. We can assist you to maximise the gain on the sale of your business by weighing up the advantages and disadvantages.
Engaging with the next generation
Not all entrepreneurs build businesses to exit but because they love what they do. Through succession planning, you can ensure a lasting legacy for your business, be it for your children or to give back to the community.
