Testimonials

"MSIF’s investment allowed us to develop quickly and successfully, filling a gap where our bankers couldn’t support us. MSIF really took the time to understand our business and is so much more than a finance provider. "
Michele Dematteis, Sovex Systems


“The business would not be where it is now without the fantastic support from MSIF. The investment was crucial to us opening and we had to work to extremely tight timescales. MSIF went to great lengths to ensure that the money went through in time. They also offer much more than just finance. Their post investment mentoring scheme will be a great support to us going forward and help us through this transitional phase of the business.”
Sarah Simcock, Remedy, Southport


“As an early stage business it was quite difficult initially to secure finance to help us get to this stage. We were introduced to MSIF by St Helens Chamber and we were able to get the funding through quite quickly. Without them, there would have been a delay in getting the product to market.”
Gary Murphy, Heptron Renewable Energy, St Helens


“MSIF have been fantastic to deal with. The difference with them is that they know the local market and can make their own decisions. I was treated as an individual not just a number. They took the time to understand the business and because of their local knowledge they knew that it would work.”
Tony Burns, Pinch, Liverpool


“MSIF have been fantastic to work with. They are professional, easy to work with and educated me throughout the process. Taking over a business is a huge step but they have given me the confidence and support I needed.”
Russell Smith, Bakewell & Horner, Wirral


“MSIF have been amazing. I’ve raised business funding before which was a difficult and lengthy process but with MSIF it was completely different. They helped us step by step through the funding process which made it a stress-free experience. MSIF are more than just a finance provider. They understand businesses and have in-depth knowledge of the local marketplace and lots of contacts with business support providers in the area which has been a great help. The support we’ve had and continue to receive has really made a difference to us.”
Kurt Wilson, Izakaya, Liverpool


“We have worked with MSIF before at one of my other companies and they were fantastic to deal with. There aren’t many places locally where you can get a start-up loan yet these are vital to the region’s economy particularly in the knowledge sector.”
Dr Philip Goddard, Dendrite Labs, Runcorn


“This was my first experience dealing with private equity. We had a number of investors interested but we chose to go with MSIF because they genuinely care about the business and I know that they will support us going forward. MSIF’s culture is to create and sustain jobs in the area and their knowledge and experience will be invaluable to us as we look to grow the business.”
Paul McGuckin, CS Financial Solutions, Liverpool


“The loan from MSIF has been absolutely crucial to enable me to start my business and I am really grateful for the support they have provided. As well as helping me, the loan has meant that I have been able to employ 4 other people one of whom is another mum who hasn’t worked for 7 years.”
Louise Codman, Little Kickers, Wirral
