Your Financial Services Consultancy Partner:
Independent, Professional and unique.
For your Multi Academy Trust, Academy School or Independent School.
With over 30 years’ experience in the Banking Industry and 15 years focused entirely on the Education and Not for Profit Sector there is no other person with the knowledge and expertise to support you with the following:

A monthly retainer secures you unlimited telephone and video support covering: 

  • Consultancy and support for your banking relationship (advice on banking structure, charges, mandate simplification, tender opportunities etc.) 

  • Support to increase the returns you achieve from cash deposits and cash management 

  • Review and drafting of your cash deposit and investment policy

  •  Research and knowledge of bank deposit appetite and offerings

  • Broker services to explore and compare operating lease suppliers (you do not need to use your equipment supplier’s finance agreement – we can usually source the finance part of the agreement on better terms) 

  • Review of your DPO function* 

  • Review and advice on your HR legal support & H&S risk management approach * 

  • Sourcing of a professional Clerking service* 

*We can offer outstanding (all inclusive) HR Legal support for schools from our dedicated Schools HR Legal partners as well as outsourced H&S Risk Management, DPO service and Clerking. Please ask as to arrange a quotation at discounted rates) 

For Independent Schools we can:

  • Help Independent Schools get the right term loan or Finance Lease (whether secured or not)

  • Term loans up to 25 years

  • Finance Leases up to 10 years

  • Provide Deposit support

  • Support Banking Tenders

  • Review your DPO function

  • Audit and advise on your HR Legal support & Risk Management approach

For Independent School lending support, we usually offer this service without charge to the school as the funder will usually pay a commission.

For Academies, we usually work on an annual retainer basis with a low monthly set fee giving you 12-months support for your banking and treasury management.


There is usually a 'net negative cost' to you as we have an excellent track record for increasing interest earned (despite the low interest rate environment we find ourselves in) 


Deposit and Treasury management guidance will be based on your own risk appetite in accordance with your Cash Deposit and Investment policy (we include the drafting of a policy if one is not in place or requires updating).
