“FGI understood our business’ potential and did not shy away when others did. They structured a global credit insurance policy covering transactions in South America and the Middle East to help us safely manage our diverse portfolio. Their policy compliance management platform “T.R.U.S.T.TM” has enabled us to recover over $140,000 in paid claims over the past three years.”

“FGI provided us with a financing solution for both our US and UK companies, as well as our export receivables. Not only were they able to move quickly, but the $5 million ABL facility they provided us with offered increased availability and fewer covenants than the solution we had with our previous lender.”

“FGI really took the time to understand our business and our clients in order to provide us with a customised and flexible financing solution that we were unable to find elsewhere in the market. Their “can do” attitude, personal approach and knowledge of the products available to us, meant we were able to obtain a facility that will see CFS through the next phase of its life.”

“Not only was FGI able to give us significantly more working capital than our previous bank, they were the only ones able to finance our Latin American subsidiaries in Mexico, Panama, Chile and Columbia. They understood our business and provided us with a $7 million facility along with business tools to support our future growth in these regions.”

“We sought immediate access to additional working capital in order to successfully execute our strategic transformation plan. In a very short period of time, FGI was able to provide us with a $12 million facility which allowed us to pay off our European lender, infuse working capital into our subsidiaries in the UK and Germany and allocate funds to our subsidiary in Spain, where we previously had no availability.”

“We needed a facility that could work alongside our UK facility to support the rapid growth of our US subsidiary. At a time when our very own US bank refused to provide us with a loan, FGI was able to deliver a $2 million facility flexible enough to support high concentrations. In addition, they helped us put in place the credit insurance policy we needed to protect our business.”

“We needed a comprehensive ABL financing solution for our UK subsidiary. Not only were we looking for a flexible solution that would blend well with our existing facilities in the U.S., but we were seeking a personal level of service to suit the dynamic nature of our business. FGI came up with a great solution which exceeded our requirements. They understood our business and worked tirelessly through the transaction process to deliver.”

“We were rapidly expanding. We needed a lender who could handle our sizeable foreign exposure and provide financing across multiple jurisdictions. FGI took the time to understand our unique operations and effectively handled a very complex international deal. They were the only lender able to provide financing to both our UK and Dubai operations.”

“When we needed a new lender, FGI was the only call I needed to make given their track record for completing international deals successfully.  Not only was FGI able to come up with a creative solution to completely pay off our incumbent lender, but they also negotiated better coverage with our insurance carrier, allowing us to extend better terms and consequently increase our sales volume.”
