We believe our clients should have the right broker team to support them. Hera Indemnity will

provide that support and a dedicated client manager will work closely with you from day one

knowledge to ensure your insurance needs are resolved diligently and eff ectively.

role of a ‘Professional Expert’, you may well face a claim, or indeed be sued for providing

Our Difference

effi cient fi nance solutions to help professional fi rms, of all types and sizes, deliver on their long

Hera Finance –

With confi dence returning to the UK economy, the focus on growth among professional fi rms

is once again a priority. Interestingly, the recent Annual Global CEO Survey published by

PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC), confi rmed that confi dence is improving among business

leaders and their focus is switching from the survival mode of recent years to revival and

optimism about growth prospects. This turnaround is particularly evident in the UK and some

61% of CEOs think it will continue to improve next year.

This improved business and economic outlook, following a few challenging years, has certainly

given more confi dence to professional practices with regard to the future. However, while

general optimism about growth opportunities is high, challenges remain as to how best to

exploit them. The survey further highlighted the main opportunities to grow business over the

next 12 months and the number one choice was to improve product and service innovation,

followed by increasing share in existing markets and, fi nally, mergers and acquisitions.

Professional fi rms need to respond to these growth challenges by investing in the business

and their assets and Hera Finance is ready to work with you as a partner to meet these

challenges ‘head-on’.

Business Funding For Professional Practices

This might include, for example, Professional Indemnity Insurance premiums, IT and Offi ce

upgrades, Practice Acquisitions, Partner buy-ins /outs, Tax Liabilities, VAT Funding,

Working Capital, Practice Certifi cates or Personal Injury / Disbursement Funding – whatever

the requirement Hera Finance will off er a number of options for either short or long-term

business solutions.
