At Acorn, we Specialise in Funding For IFAs


Clients – particularly High Net Worth Individuals, are more informed about investing opportunities. They’re quick to seek other investment options if they feel that their assets are not being looked after as they wish. Investing in better software technology or outsourcing your product research has become business-critical, not just a nice-to-have. In addition, the industry is finding it harder to attract and retain top talent

Servicing valued clients is simply costing advisers and practices more.

The lifecycle of a business means that you, or your clients, are likely to need funding options for the next level of growth. A business development loan could be invested in IT, cybersecurity, digital marketing or even larger premises. As you grow, so does your Tax liability – often managed by short term loans that won’t impact your cashflow. You may even consider a Partner buy-out or look to utilise acquisition funding to acquire a competitor.

In our experience, High Street banks can sometimes seem less supportive of IFAs. We specialise in your profession and understand the specific needs that Financial Advisors face. Whether you or your clients need funding options for Tax, capital investment, or acquisition funding, we can help.


As an Independent Financial Adviser, you understand the importance of client trust and long-term relationships. Helping a client to access the right funding options creates a clear added value.
