As a business owner you may have accumulated funds in a variety of pensions throughout your working life.

This could be through an occupational pension or some form of private scheme. Whatever the source of these funds, business owners are often frustrated with the performance of their pension funds and a lack of flexibility.

You may be unaware that these funds could play a part in investing in your own business.
In research commissioned in 2012 by Clifton Asset Management almost three quarters (73 per cent) of SME financial decision makers and their advisers were unaware of Pension-led funding as a source of business finance.

While there are a growing number of non-bank funding options available to business owners they may not suit you and your business.
Pension-led funding provides a finance option that is very different from many other sources of finance by allowing you, the business owner, to exercise a level of control over your business finances that other finance options may not give you.

While there are a growing number of non-bank funding options available to business owners they may not suit you and your business.
Whatever the funding method, there has to be some element of guarantee to the lender.
Some guarantees are more onerous than others. In almost every case, a first charge is made to secure the loan.
The size of the charge can vary depending on the type of loan and other guarantees required.
Pension-led funding provides a finance option that is very different from many other sources of finance by allowing you, the business owner, to exercise a level of control over your business finances that other finance options will not give you.
