About focus capital partners

With offices in Limerick and Dublin we provide Corporate Finance Services to clients across the country. While we have extensive experience across all traditional corporate finance activities, we specialise in four key areas including; Debt Funding, Equity Fundraising, Mergers & Acquisitions and sourcing Foreign Capital.

Debt Financing

Our Debt Funding experience is extensive and ongoing. We have raised over a half a billion euro in debt funding for projects in the Republic of Ireland in the last 2 – 3 years. We have a strong track record of delivering challenging refinances and DPO’s together with a unique knowledge and experience of transacting in the current loan sale environment. We primarily focus on funding real estate refinances, development projects and trading SMEs. We have a deep understanding and an extensive network into the various segments of the debt funding landscape.

Equity Raising

We have been highly successful in raising Equity for Irish SMEs. We raise funding from Seed through to Series B stages and beyond. We have extensive relationships with private equity houses, venture capitalists, family offices and high net worths. This enables us to source equity in short timeframes and typically form sources which will be strategically beneficial in the longer term. We engage on equity raising projects when we believe strongly in the team, the product, the market opportunity and our ability to add real value beyond simply raising the funds. We have a specific focus on the technology and renewables space.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We have deep experience and expertise in advising on corporate transactions, with a specific focus on strategic Acquisitions and Management Buy Outs. Our professional training as Chartered Accountants combined with our commercial trading experience at senior levels ensures we combine strong technical skills with commercial acumen. Coupled with our ability to raise both debt and equity Focus Capital Partners can provide a complete solution for our M&A engagements.

Sourcing Foreign Capital

We have a team who work explicitly on securing Foreign Capital, specifically focusing on the Asian market. Our focus is on raising equity/debt capital for Irish projects and introducing/advising on Joint Venture partnership opportunities, primarily in leisure, agri-food, property and healthcare sectors.

Tax / Focus Tax Partners

Our Tax Group, Focus Tax Partners, have extensive experience providing strategic tax advice to individuals, small and medium sized businesses, high net worth individuals, trusts and partnerships.
