Graham Ingham joins FW Capital’s Merseyside team

Press Release 25th November 2014

A familiar face in the North West's business and corporate finance community has joined FW Capital, the company which manages The North West Fund for Loans Plus.

Graham Ingham has joined the fund manager as an Investment Executive based at its
Liverpool office.  Working alongside Investment Executives, Simon Berry and Carol Bolland, Graham will be responsible for FW Capital's Merseyside business development activities.

Joining from GP Commercial Finance, he is an experienced business banker whose career
includes time at Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank, Barclays Mercantile Business Finance and GMAC Commercial Finance.  He was also a regional director with Begbies Traynor in Manchester.

"Over the last four years, FW Capital has established a strong reputation in the North West thanks to its expertise and flexible approach.  It has backed businesses in all sectors
across the region, boosting their prospects by providing them with much-needed capital in tough times.

"Merseyside is home to an impressive mix of businesses, including some well-established businesses that have stood the test of time, created jobs and are continuing to make a
contribution to the local economy. I'll be working with my contacts to ensure they understand what FW Capital can offer," Graham explained.

The North West Fund for Loans Plus, managed by FW Capital, is part of the £155m North West Fund and is financed jointly by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Investment Bank.

FW Capital works with banks and other funders on a wide range of requirements and the Fund's flexible lending criteria means FW Capital can consider cash flow loans and not simply accept or reject on the basis of available security.

Established businesses in all five Merseyside boroughs have benefitted from loans from the £45 million North West Fund for Loans Plus managed by FW Capital. FW Capital is keen to provide further funding in the region.

Gary Guest, FW Capital's Fund Manager in the North West is pleased to welcome Graham.  He said: "In the last financial year, loans from The North West Fund for Loans Plus helped create or safeguard 750 jobs and injected £8.8 million into the economy. 

"With part of the Fund allocated for Merseyside, Graham will help us ensure that more Merseyside businesses benefit from what The Fund can offer.  He's a respected member of Merseyside's business and corporate finance community and has considerable commercial lending experience as well as experience of securing finance for businesses."

Flexible loan finance of between £50,000 and £750,000 is available for a range of purposes, including owner-occupier property purchases, asset/equipment purchases or growth capital

Businesses, their advisers and other intermediaries can contact Graham at FW Capital's
Liverpool offices at The Plaza, 100 Old Hall Street, Liverpool L3 9QJ.  (Graham's contact details are: graham.ingham@fwcapital.co.uk, T: 0151 600 5360 M: 07881 379 016.)
