Your Companies Risk & Return

When starting up a business important factors to consider are the risk and return. You could say that starting your new business is a bit like a civilised version of war. In this case, companies, not countries, are the rivals you risk taking on. But, with the potential return there to be achieved, are you willing to take the risk that could provide return?

 

The risk attached to an investment is a way of describing how likely it is to lose money. But if you really let that thought get to you then perhaps a job stacking shelves is more your thing, with the only risk coming if you take the third and final step on your step ladder when stocking up. Not that we recommend falling off and breaking your ankle…

There is a risk in every walk of life, but whether you’re ready or indeed want to take the plunge is something that only you can decide. Perhaps you’re considering trading in your car? But can’t quite afford it just yet. Thus, you may be playing the waiting game while saving up for that brand spanking new motor. A risk, or just being sensible?

Buying shares in a new company, on the other hand, may be considered very high risk: there is a possibility that the firm’s products or services may not succeed, which could lead to losses for shareholders.

However, the potential returns for low-risk investments can be lower than for high-risk investment.

Whilst the value of any investment can often go up and down, returns could be much higher over the longer term if a firm is a success or if it is bought by a larger rival.

 

At the end of the day, risk is often boiled down to your current financial situation. Often the hardest part of starting a business is raising the money to get going. The entrepreneur might have a great idea and clear idea of how to turn it into a successful business. However, if sufficient finance can’t be raised, it is unlikely that the business will get off the ground.

Thus, when you are making business investment decisions, you need to establish your attitude to risk. Often, by taking on more risk can you give your money the opportunity to grow over the long term and really make a success of your company now and into the future.

Alternative finance could hold the key to funding and expanding your business. For many small business owners, access to large funds from traditional lenders can be somewhat restricted for future planning. Is your business one in three that have reported difficulties in securing business loans?

The alternative funding approach is proving particularly popular with startups. Businesses under five years old are as likely to select alternative finance methods to secure capital as approaching banks. This is key for direct investment in businesses, including stock purchase, expansion & refurbishment funds and equipment purchases – not only that, alternative funding is potentially accessible at a faster rate than your traditional loans.

Often in the small/medium business world, the alternative funding option is a viable route that potentially carries success. Aurora Capital eradicate the risk and maximise the potential for success by assisting UK businesses rase the capital they require as well as a suitable product for their organisation!

Is your business geared up for Christmas?

November is upon us. As the nights draw darker before long, thoughts of Christmas will be your company’s main focus (if it isn’t already) as well as your consumers alike. As the business landscape gets more and more competitive, it is essential to make sure you get it right and plan your festive operation sooner rather than later, from stock management to marketing and beyond. After all, it’s the most wonderful time of year!

This time of year is where many businesses enter their most busiest period, where customers will experience a greater interest in your company’s product, service or organisation as a whole. Thus, it’s worth being prepared early in terms of sales, employees and equipment that’s needed.

As we know through previous years, with Christmas comes the festive feel good vibes, not to mention the colder weather! Christmas decorations for your shop or premises shows that you’re in the spirit of bringing joy to your customers – there’s no room for a scrooge in Christmas business marketing and preparation!

From decorations to stock, heating to marketing, retail to hospitality – your winter business funding is essential. Having this in place with a good system in place to handle this extra demand and manage purchasing requirements on the back of this. With this in mind, the process of planning needs to be thought about relatively quickly, as you can bet your bottom dollar your competitors will leap in front of you if you fail to activate these plans early.

In addition, you need to be clear about how much money you are going to need and where to find it. You also need to make sure you’re matching, if not beating your competitors within your industry throughout this lucrative period of business operation.

You also need to work out how much financing you require and when you will need it. While a bit of healthy competition is good for any business improvements, you don’t want them having/using a great idea before you’ve even started singing the first verse of Jingle Bells!

Most importantly of all, don’t wait until your need for extra festive funds becomes urgent. This is the time where you need to assess which funding you may need and what is suitable for you and your business.

It can be helpful to understand the benefits of alternative funding, which can ultimately be worthwhile for the future of your company and the type of service you offer. Thus, here at Aurora Capital, we are funding consultants, assisting UK businesses raise the necessary capital they require to facilitate future plans in your company.

Alternative Forward-Thinking Funding For SME

Here at Aurora Capital we have only ever worked with SME’s, and only ever will, so we understand the business needs better than other commercial brokers. The alternative funding approach is one that is a forward thinking tactic that can help your business prosper now and into the future.

It is becoming increasingly clear that business owners are looking outside of traditional fixed income securities for a number of reasons, towards other asset classes that can provide them with a reliable source of income. With this in mind, alternative funding has proved to be a viable option for smaller sized businesses that are looking to move up the ladder.

Whichever industry organisations are trading in, whether it be small or medium, it can often be difficult to obtain a traditional loan through banking or other such methods. This can be down to factors such as credit criteria, reducing and restricting the bank’s capital available for lending in what are considered small and unprofitable relationships. Loans of under £500K are not typically profitable for most banks with their huge overhead, regulatory burden and cost structure.

But what’s the alternative?

Aurora Capital independently work towards obtaining the best quotes within the current financial market. Essentially, we are able to make capital available for the wider variety of company owners in the UK.

We keep our finger on the pulse throughout the funding industry, from personal guarantees to lenders reducing their rates. This can all be professionally handled by your dedicated account manager, he/she will look after your application process from start to finish, as well as provide the support you require.

Although we have access to 30+ lenders, we are totally independent and will always strive to give advice when determining what funding solution is best for your business moving forward.

Having a funding specialist on board such as Aurora Capital, is particularly popular with startup businesses, who are more likely to select alternative finance methods.

Forward thinking and tapping into the alternative funding approach is key for direct investment in your business. Not only can you cover the expense of stock purchase, expansion & refurbishment funds and equipment purchases, alternative funding is potentially accessible at a faster rate than the traditional methods that may (or may not) be accessible to UK organisations.

The Development Of Online Banking Systems

Often many businesses venture down the traditional route of seeking finance such as banks when seeking funding for growth/expand their businesses. Since the dawn of the traditional banking era, the development of banking online has grown to a new level – benefiting the alternative funding avenue.

The beauty of our modern 21st century world gives Internet banking or E-banking a whole new meaning, allowing customers of financial institutions to carry financial transactions on a secure website. Through requirements such as passwords and customer authentication, a customer can access his/her account any time they want over e-banking. Thus, e-banking has given birth to 24/7 banking, which earlier was just restricted to normal in-house banking hours – today each and every bank is providing this facility to its customers making it an easy transition for those not quite up to modern times.

While personable card machines or ledger posting machines may still be in operation, the online banking storm has opened its doors for all the customers to operate beyond their boundaries. It essentially allows business professionals to carry out their banking transactions, including alternative funding options. Through convenience banking, the bank is carried to the doorstep of the customer.

From traditional to modern ways of banking thinking, you may have also heard of cloud-based lending platforms that simplifies the borrowing experience, helping lenders close loans faster and reduce operational inefficiencies – all through automation and configuration in a quick and efficient manner.

Online banking without some previous knowledge or know-how of how it operates can appear daunting to the older generation, what with hacking and data always a concern in the online world. However, in terms of young Business Owners looking to make their mark, they can sometimes be guilty of focusing on the money being spent rather than the benefit it brings. Nevertheless, this still doesn’t change the fact that in the case of alternative funding, as with many of business activities, it really can save you time and money.

It can be helpful to understand the benefits of alternative funding, which can ultimately be worthwhile for the future of your company and the type of service you offer. As well as working in tandem with many of your modern processes such as online banking.

The alternative funding markets are ever growing, with more lenders emerging with new funding products and all offering bespoke funding solutions that differ from one another.

The alternative funding method can be unique and tailored to your needs, through it’s flexible and fast nature – much like the online banking method.

To Summer Destinations and Back

“Everybody has a summer holiday, doin’ things they always wanted to. So we’re going on a summer holiday, to make our dreams come true – for me and you.” Whatever they say about Sir Cliff Richard, he certainly knows how to get you in the holiday mood – if only he came up with a song that defeated the holiday blues…

Let’s face it, after our summer get away has come to an end we have a touch of the holiday blues, in addition to many of us even experiencing challenges when we return home – due to spending more than we can afford, coupled with what we actually come back to when it’s time to go back to work.

With the summer holiday period well into its peak time, British tourists looking to escape the mundane routine of work life are likely to spend an average of £1,175 per person on their getaway plus an additional £118 on pre-trip purchases such as holiday clothes and toiletries.

Many of which are in the mindset of ‘spend now worry later’ with a simple but costly credit card payment, but this raises the question of; how you’re going to pay off the eventual bill?

After all, everyone is entitled to free time outside the confines of the office or working environment for a few weeks, holidays are something people find very hard to give up and that’s understandable – for some its what is anticipated the most throughout the calendar year.

Thus, to enjoy your summer and keep your business performing to the best of its capabilities why not consider savings/cutbacks or better still, the alternative funding option for business is one that start-up businesses can benefit from.

While every successful business has an Accountant and Solicitor representing them in their time of need, another component to have in your business armoury is a Funding Specialist – the question is do you have one? If not, why not?!

Funding specialists such as us at Aurora Capital assist clients with procuring funding support for the organisation. We’re able to collaborate with your internal services and ensure your needs and expectations are met fully – not just this summer, but all year round!

The Summertime Slow Slump

The summertime is a much appreciated time within the annual calendar, gone are the days of winter chills, blankets and a warm cup of cocoa, the warm weather brings about a sense of cheer for everyone to venture outside and enjoy the sunshine, an alcoholic beverage and a chance to get your milk bottles out for some much needed sun (legs!) – although as we’re about to find out, sometimes there isn’t always that much to cheer about from a business point of view as custom seems to dry up (if you pardon the pun.)

Unless your business is set on the sands of a local beach selling ice creams, inflatables and bucket and spades, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank off the back of this summer’s glorious heatwave, the summer months can bring with it a huge lag in business.

The “summer slow months” can be tough for small business owners. They can really feel the burn. Have you ever found yourself wondering: why is business so slow right now? As Michael Jackson once sung: you’re not alone!

It can be due to many things why the slow period may be affecting your business, so let’s take a look at the main reasons:

  • During the summer months the last thing your customers want is to be indoors. Instead during their summer holidays they’ll most likely be lapping up the sunshine for a number of weeks. Prior to this many people may be in ‘holiday mode’ and not be sticking to their normal routine of buying a regular item that you offer.
  • In addition, those lucky enough to be heading away on holiday here or abroad will also need spending money, expect to see many saving the last few pennies to make their holiday that extra special. In this instance, they’ll also be hard to get in touch with, even online.
  • The summer season also marks a time for school children to enjoy their time off, which in turn means many parents are booking time off to stay at home or making childcare arrangements that all mount up to a significant cost, subsequently making sacrifices at home which may involved your product and/or service taking a back seat for the time being.
  • Unless you provide a local service that customers NEED you’re going to start noticing your calendar looking pretty barren.

Thus, while there may be many reasons for custom being affected during the Summer, what can you do to rectify the situation and stop the process putting a dent in your business dealings?

  • Expand your range of products and services for longer seasons
  • Extend your operating season for consistent cash flow
  • Keep carrying on (stay active and positive)
  • Stay on top of your finances (this doesn’t mean cutting expenses)

The latter of these options is something Aurora Capital can help you with and provide expertise to your down turn. Alternative finance could hold the key to funding and expanding your business. For many small business owners, access to large funds from traditional lenders can be somewhat restricted for future planning, including the summer slowness you may be experiencing at present.

As such, Aurora Capital are funding consultants, assisting UK businesses raise the necessary capital they require to facilitate future plans in the company throughout the year. We have access to 15+ different lenders in a range of different lending markets, enabling us to source the most competitive solutions for your business. Not only will we strive to source the most competitive offers, but we can advise you on the best product for your business moving forward.

Enhancing this opportunity, enables us to prioritise education and collaboration to successfully secure the livelihoods of small UK businesses, which in turn can see you claim your own summer sensation.

What Is The Real Cost of World Cup 2018?

From an England point of view, the real cost of World Cup 2018 in many fans minds will be seen as ‘failure’ to reach the tournament’s final against eventual winners France. With many thinking that this would be the best chance we had of winning since 1966.

While France celebrated in to the night with the Jules Rimet trophy in their clutches, Gareth Southgate and his young team flew home back to blighty. In the days before, many English fans flew back themselves and returned to the normality of work and family life with the Premier League season set to kick off in a few weeks, it’ll be back to the rivalry we have been accustomed too between club supporters.

However, looking back on what was an incredibly successful World Cup campaign, not only for England but the tournament as a whole, there is at the end of the day, a cost to everything. From the a consumer point of view, the ticket prices alone were eye-watering to say the least. Many standard category tickets for the knockout stage matches set fans back around £2,458 ($3,249), while the group stages will have cost £2,631 ($3,477) combined.

All in all, that’s around 22% of the UK’s average annual salary. Plus, flights at anywhere between £600 ($793) and £1,500 ($1,983) depending on where you are in the world, insurance at £41 ($54), and hotels at around £987 ($1,305) and counting, the cost of the world cup is a small fortune for any individual fans attending the competition.

However, the true cost of the world cup extends far beyond what most can imagine. If you take into account the cost on the host nation, the funds handled by FIFA and national football associations, the money lost in advertising, operations, infrastructure and accommodating resources for businesses worldwide, from an economic perspective the overall break-even after losses and profits is highly questionable.

This year companies in the UK witnessed a blackout the morning after some of the England games; employees just didn’t turn up to work.

The estimated loss figure for employees ‘pulling sickies’ reaches £500 million ($661 million) nationwide. After the (rugby match) England vs Colombia encounter, millions of football fans were expected to call in sick, and they did. While each individual case may seem like nothing much, all together, a £500 million loss in a day is a big hit for the economy.

As we wave goodbye to another tournament that’s come and gone quicker than a normal conversation about Brexit, the overall cost of Russia hosting the world cup is believed to around the $14.2 billion mark – making it the most expensive in history thus far – you can bet a fair amount went on the fireworks during the closing ceremony!

It’s difficult to say whether Russia’s massive investment, will reap long lasting benefits from hosting the competition. Although the injection of cash means they will have a few more hospitals and better airports in the long term, essentially improving the country for a better future.

With this in mind, businesses back home in the UK will be seeking funding for their own financial future throughout a wide range of industries. Thus, It can be helpful to understand the benefits of Alternative funding, which can ultimately be cheaper and worthwhile for the future of your company and the type of service you offer. The alternative funding markets are ever growing, with more lenders emerging with new funding products and all offering bespoke funding solutions that differ from one another.

Having a funding specialist on board is particularly popular with startup businesses, who are more likely to select alternative finance methods to secure capital as approaching banks.

Is the business planning there to make your team successful, much like Southgate and co? Do you have what it takes to take a leaf out of Russia’s book and make your idea a success? Can you go all the way and reap the rewards in a French and fancy way?

Game, Set, Fund Your Future!

Tennis was once upon a time one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it was never quite possible to gain enough distance; many of us winced (depending on how old you are) for instance, at the latter years of players such as Tim Henman.

Henman, was the first male player from the United Kingdom since Roger Taylor in the 1970s to reach the semi-finals of the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Championship. However, Henman never reached the finals of any Grand Slams. I’m sure our man Timmy will certainly admit from a British Tennis perspective, that Wimbledon has always been the crowning glory of any tennis player.

Step forward Andy Murray – the poster boy of British tennis was about to take centre stage. The Scot has so far won two Wimbledon titles, but pulled out of this year’s tournament to the disappointment of tennis fans across the country.

Nonetheless, the 2018 Men’s edition of Wimbledon saw the game’s stars descend onto the halo turf of Wimbledon. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal came and went, but Novak Djokovic eventually ruled supreme, winning his fourth title beating Kevin Anderson.

While many witnessed Djokovic lift the trophy aloft and others feeling the disappointment of not seeing Murray represent Great Britain once again, the real winner was the competition itself – especially with their undoubted customer experience Wimbledon continues to possess!

Technology, customer demands/hospitality, and the way the game is played; the foundation of the event is always a constant, despite the hefty prices people still turn out in their thousands every year to the tennis sanctuary of Wimbledon.

With this in mind, it’s about giving customers what they want from a business. While Wimbledon can afford to put on Tennis’s greatest show, how do you manage your events or important company necessities?

Alternative finance could hold the key to funding and expanding your business. For many small business owners, access to large funds from traditional lenders can be somewhat restricted for future planning. Is your business one in three that have reported difficulties in securing business loans?

The alternative funding approach is proving particularly popular with startups. Businesses under five years old are as likely to select alternative finance methods to secure capital as approaching banks. This is key for direct investment in businesses, including stock purchase, expansion & refurbishment funds and equipment purchases – not only that, alternative funding is potentially accessible at a faster rate than your traditional loans.

Much like a game of tennis, you need to plan the approach and beat your competitor. Often in the small/medium business world, the alternative funding option is a viable route that potentially carries success.

As such, Aurora Capital are funding consultants, assisting UK businesses raise the necessary capital they require to facilitate future plans in the company. We have access to 15+ different lenders in a range of different lending markets, enabling us to source the most competitive solutions for your business. Not only will we strive to source the most competitive offers, but we can advise you on the best product for your business moving forward.
