We operate as a group of like-minded associates, all of whom have held senior roles in business for many years, both in the UK and internationally – the breadth of our experience is difficult to match.
We can provide services to the following clients: partnerships of four or more people; trusts and charities; limited companies; limited liability partnerships and public limited companies. We regret we cannot assist sole traders and partnerships of under four people.
Corporate Money Matters offers a unique independent service to small and medium-sized businesses. Our independent status has allowed us to develop a dynamic view of corporate funding because we don’t have allegiances with particular lenders. Add to this the breadth of our experience – we operate as a group of like-minded associates, all of whom have held senior roles in business, both nationally and internationally.
In any economic phase opportunities present themselves, but you may not have the time or the skill sets to take these up. Whether it is time to grow, merge, divest or enter new areas of trade, our input into strategic decision making will make a difference when lenders/investors are invited to engage.
In our experience assumptions can be the mother of all calamities for a business entering a critical phase. At Corporate Money Matters we focus on the careful consideration of your funding requirements. Time and again we find that even the most credible of commercial finance solutions are not the best that can be achieved for the client. So we build relationships with our clients and get to know their enterprises thoroughly before we apply our market knowledge.
We can provide innovative solutions, whether finance or otherwise. Once we have understood your needs and vision we will make it our business to inspire others to see their value and our reputation for straight talking means that we won’t waste your time with promises that can’t be delivered.
In addition, our consultancy offering allows you to access expert advice on issues from planning law to training, either on an ad-hoc basis or over the course of an entire project.
Corporate Social Responsibility
On arrival at Corporate Money Matters’ reception you are unlikely to miss the company’s collection of landmines.
This unusual display, which includes a rare Russian shoebox landmine, reflects the company’s work with MAG, a charity that reclaims land contaminated with the remnants of conflict such as landmines, cluster munitions, bombs and mortar shells.
CMM managing director, Graham Allen, is UK voluntary ambassador for MAG. His work involves visits to MAG projects, most recently Laos, enabling him to spread the word about the charity’s work wherever possible and to fundraise the UK. As MAG points out, left over ordnance doesn’t obey ceasefire agreements.
In the commercial world, Corporate Money Matters’ social responsibility profile continues to evolve. We have taken a leading role in sourcing funding for the renewable energy sector, keeping up with the latest technological advances and political manoeuvrings. This has been essential as lenders often need to develop their understanding of the industry before engaging with a funding proposal. We are also committed to supporting rural business in all its diversity, from agriculture to high-tech.
Overall, we are recognised for holding clients’ interests close to our hearts and to this end Graham has been involved in a number of challenging financial restructuring projects, across various sectors that have been successful in keeping administrators at bay.
Corporate Money Matters strives to understand its environmental impacts and looks to minimise these as much as practicable. Our environmental policy on such matters as consumption, use and disposal of materials. We follow the Reduce (consumption), Reuse, Recycle hierarchy.

As a group of associates, we are well published across the range of our professional disciplines. We are members of several business associations such as the CLA, FSB and Ingenuity. Managing director, Graham Allen, has previously been a columnist and contributor to a number of trade magazines. Graham has also been invited to contribute to economics articles published by Birmingham Universities Economics department.
