Client success stories

How have we raised finance for businesses like yours?

From Minarets to Moules Marinieres…

Conrad Robins and his team at ASC Cornwall have helped numerous Clients realise their dreams over the years and later watched them flourish in their chosen situation

Most definitely a case in point is Melissa Kelly who was recommended to Conrad when seeking to acquire a pub/restaurant business in the West Country.

After a varied career which embraced life as a pastry chef in her early years to latterly working in finance and insurance for a large corporate in Istanbul, Melissa and partner Liam identified the Balnoonan Inn near St Ives in Cornwall as being ideal for them and began work on an extensive business plan

The couple were delighted with the speed with which ASC obtained loan approval and an offer of finance, commenting that Conrad provided “calm reassurance throughout the process”  and was able, through his extensive range of professional contacts, to introduce a very supportive local accountant and other professional advisers.

With the premises being built in part in the 17th century and on the site of a former tin mine, the Balnoonan Inn offers a good degree of charm and character and  Melissa plans to offer weddings in the grounds in the coming years.

In the meantime however, having expanded the business to year round trading, and attracting visitors including bird watchers enjoying the sight of buzzards nesting in the grounds, she and Liam are fully occupied,  serving up to 200 meals in the restaurant on a summer Sunday….
