The Corporate
Finance experts

We are the national brand leader in SME corporate finance in the UK and our member firms are recognised as the experts in smaller company transactions, typically for owner-managed business clients. 

The member firms of The CFN assist SMEs to grow a well-capitalised business, organically or by acquisition, and encourage business owners to plan for their eventual exit, so they are more sellable and more valuable when the time is right for them to sell their business.

The aim of The CFN is to assist our member firms to be able to advise owner-managed businesses to run better businesses. These accountancy firms and corporate finance advisers provide SMEs with probably the most complete & practical business advice that is available anywhere in the UK and we support them to grow the volume and value of funding & M&A transactions in their communities.
