“After multiple unsuccessful attempts at securing a credit insurance policy through brokers in the UK and the US, we were pleasantly surprised with FGI’s ability to quickly broker a policy with Euler Hermes that was tailored to our business requirement, enabling us to securely continue to grow our business in the US.”

“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.”

Managing Director, CC International

“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.”
