The Challenge

This highly successful international equestrian brand was looking for a funding solution to help it manage its seasonal cycle. The business is a supplier of equestrian related goods to a loyal customer base of specialist retailers and large multinationals. 

To allow the business to move to the next level, it needed to increase its funding to be able to meet growing customer demand and manage currency fluctuations, which is when they approached Bibby Financial Services (BFS).
