Bamboo Capital provides all of the core services required by entrepreneurs and fast growing businesses. Bamboo Capital has a network of experienced senior personnel who have operated at the highest level in advisory businesses and/or in industry. The founder, Simon Woolley, has significant experience as an advisor, manager and business owner.


The Bamboo Capital team has vast experience in advising clients in relation to debt and equity issues:

  • reviewing the current debt and equity structure and advising on alternatives
  • reviewing current facility structures, terms and pricing, with a view to achieving lower pricing and/or better overall terms
  • strategies to deal with current or likely covenant breaches
  • strategies in relation to maturing facilities, including alternative funders or extending the funding relationship base and alternative debt structures
  • hedging strategies
  • debt strategies for acquisitions
  • restructuring

We will assist in identifying the optimum debt and equity structure for your business and/or its strategy and then work to source a deliverable funding package on market terms.

Our team has extensive high level contacts with equity providers, banks, debt funds, asset based lenders and other debt providers. Our experience and contact base is invaluable in short circuiting the process of establishing the appetite of equity providers and current lenders, as well as identifying replacement and/or additional funding lines. Particularly relevant in these COVID19 times.

The Bamboo Capital team has extensive experience advising clients in relation to corporate finance requirements:

  • mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • management buy-outs and buy-ins
  • attracting private equity investment

We want to work with:

  • entrepreneurs and business owners seeking to raise development capital
  • business owners looking to extract capital value

The Bamboo Capital team has experience gained from working with numerous businesses across a wide spectrum of sectors, as well as (importantly) starting and growing their own entrepreneurial businesses. 

This gives a unique perspective:

  • Identifying and advising on the challenges faced by new and growing businesses
    • working capital and cashflow
    • investment for growth
    • marketing strategies
    • financial information systems
    • risk
  • Understanding the additional challenges faced by more mature businesses
    • management issues
    • HR issues
    • growth issues
    • funding and investment issues
    • digital and other marketing strategies

The Bamboo team is able to deploy both its own experience and, where appropriate, introduce a network of relevant successful and proven third party service providers (for example, accountants, brokers, strategic marketing consultants and specialist recruitment professionals) which has been built up over many years.

Simon Woolley is also able to assist with debt and corporate legal work on request - new borrowings, refinancing, reorganisations and restructuring (solvent and insolvent) - any legal work is a separate engagement through a regulated law firm.
