Enness’ Added Value
Enness is a leading broker of high-value and international finance. Having worked with high-net-worth individuals, families and entrepreneurs since 2008, we understand your needs as an adviser and your clients' expectations. When it comes to finance, we understand what’s at stake: liquidity is often the difference between your client's ability to achieve a goal, buy assets or solve a problem; without it, they may be in a challenging situation.
We can negotiate large loans, international finance, or debt using multiple asset classes – in many cases, we can broker deals (including substantial loans) that no one else can. We also work with borrowers with complex backgrounds and financial requirements to deliver finance. We have the experience, lender access and technical ability to deliver complex loans and work with clients with unusual circumstances. Our introducer network includes leading banks, large and boutique law firms, corporate service providers, accounting and tax firms and financial advisers. We broker finance for Emirati nationals and expats based in the UAE.
Enness will explore finance solutions for your client free of charge and with no obligations. Get in touch, and Enness' team of brokers will share their knowledge, insights and where they see potential options for your client and what borrowing is likely to cost.
Enness are experts in helping individuals with complex situations and requirements access high-value finance. The team can broker finance against multiple asset classes, regardless of your client's nationality, country of residence, if they are a PEP, have a sensitive background or a high profile, and so on.
Streamlined and Fast
Enness will maximise what your client can borrow, get the most competitive loan available, and broker deals quickly while keeping your workload to a minimum. Conversations will always start on a no-name basis, and you can get the ball rolling without having to fill in paperwork.
Friendly and Fair
Sometimes, your client's finances or background will need to be put on firmer footing before Enness can broker the finance they need. Whatever the scenario, Enness will come up with a plan and a solution and communicate these with your client in a friendly, frank, and fair way.
You decide how engaged you want Enness to be with your client. Enness can play an active role, working with your client alongside you and your team. Alternatively, Enness will broker finance and pass these on to you via a white-label offering.
No matter your client’s scenario and whatever they want to finance, Enness will work in a way that compliments your approach, your work, and your goals through our private client Advisor services.

Enness’ Services and Solutions
Enness brokers high-value finance for your clients. We broker deals that will allow them to buy property, release equity and access the capital they need to capture opportunities and pursue projects in the Bahamas and worldwide.
Communication and Workflow
We are proactive and forward-thinking and will work to get your client the most competitive rates and terms and maximise what they can borrow. Every loan we broker is built from scratch and will be entirely tailored to your client's financial situation, background and objectives.
So you can always provide regular updates to your client, Enness will provide you with a concrete plan, timeline, and fixed deliverables we will continually work towards, so you can always track our progress.
We know your clients are discerning and want technical aptitude and quality delivery of services from a broker. From the first point of contact, we will explore your client's options, what assets they can use to raise finance, our proposed strategy and how we will present your client's case and negotiate. If you haven't raised finance for a client before or are unsure of the process, we will talk you through how the deal will work. We can also explain what we would suggest that would help maximise what your client will borrow, keep overhead costs as low as possible and what products will deliver the best rates and terms.
We are also flexible: we know that situations and scenarios change, sometimes as the deal unfolds or as you and your client have a better understanding of the options. We will adapt as required, changing our approach or plan at any point in the deal.
Enness’ Services and Solutions
Headquartered in London, Enness has offices in Monaco, the Channel Islands and Switzerland. We work closely with advisers that serve Emirati nationals and expats who live or have links to Dubai and the UAE.
Enness' Three Key Areas of Expertise Are:
Enness has access to a network of more than 500 international lenders who can broker million-pound-plus finance. We can broker finance for projects in Dubai or abroad.
Our lender network includes international banks (including private banks), specialist and alternative lenders, and other financial institutions that offer finance. A finance broker for high-net-worth individuals, families, and entrepreneurs since 2008, we have a track record of brokering high-value finance, including significant loans of more than $100 million. Enness also specialises in brokering finance for clients with sensitive or complex financial backgrounds.
How Enness Helps You and Your Clients
Clients and prospects will often ask you to support them to access high-value and international finance. Usually, they will need capital to buy assets or property, solve a problem or make something happen. We can broker finance in complex and challenging situations, including if your client needs liquidity by a specific date or if they want to borrow a significant amount. The more your client wants to borrow, the more ambitious their projects, and the more convoluted their requirements, the more added-value Enness will have. We can work with you even if you have never supported a client in raising debt before. Whatever your client's situation or requirements, we will ensure you have various finance packages or offers to choose from, and your client has the most competitive rates and terms available on the market.
Enness will help you deliver new solutions to your clients, and we will help you to win new business or assets under management. Enness' ethos is to offer tangible value at every stage of the process, whether that is by helping you understand ideas and possibilities for your client or delivering the finance package itself. No matter your client's financial background, the reason they want to raise finance, how much they want to borrow or where they will use the loan, we will broker a solution and work in a way that compliments your approach, work, and goals.
You'll initially discuss your clients' requirements with Enness on a no-name, no paperwork basis. Enness' broker will then present different financing options that could work for your client, including in principle scenarios.
Building a Solution
Working alongside you, Enness will formulate a plan for your client so you can give them a concrete set of potential options. You'll get an indication of the rates and terms possible and what will be needed from your client to benefit from these. Enness will provide details on what the process will be.
Enness will issue indicative heads of terms for your client as soon as possible. You can use these as you see fit, and these are upgraded to credit backed agreements once Enness knows enough about your client to be able to do so with confidence.
If the plan works and your client wants to proceed, Enness will agree on an approach with you. The plan will consider all parties' needs in terms of fees, application management and communication. If desired, Enness will effectively form part of your team to deliver the solution, so you are providing a seamless service to your client. You will be kept in the loop every step of the way, and your broker will ensure you know what is happening and when you can expect delivery of any part of the plan.
As a private client adviser, you may regularly need to source diverse debt and finance solutions for your clients and prospects. You may not be able to handle these requests in-house, or you need the help of an expert partner like Enness to search the market and negotiate a hand-built finance package for your client.
The relatively short-term nature of bridging finance can be challenging, requiring experience, contacts and negotiating skills to secure the best possible terms with as much flexibility as possible. Extremely competitive interest rates, staged funding release to save on interest and utilising assets and income as security are vital elements of bridging finance deals.
Corporate finance comes in many shapes and forms. You can use it to unlock capital to grow your business, buy commercial property, purchase high-value business assets, or simply to access cash to overcome short-term liquidity challenges. Enness Global specialise in small and mid-cap companies that are looking to raise between £5–100m.
Which lenders does Enness work with?
Enness has a network of more than 500 global lenders, including international and domestic banks (including private banks) and niche and alternative lenders specialising in specific products or types of lending. In many cases, these lenders prefer introductions from a respected broker like Enness, who can effectively vet borrowers and support introductions to quality individuals. Because we know that the quality of the lender your client works with is paramount, Enness only has relationships with leading lenders with clear authority and a track record in their area of lending expertise.
How much can my client borrow?
Enness typically brokers loans of £1 million upwards, and we have a track record of brokering loans of £10 million or more. We can broker loans in any mainstream currency. Experts in international finance, we can broker finance your client can use anywhere in the world, and we regularly advise individuals and introducers looking to raise $100 million or more. We broker property finance, corporate finance, bridging loans, crypto loans, luxury asset finance and securities-backed lending. The amount your client can borrow depends on their global wealth and assets, revenue and how they plan to use the loan capital. Whatever your client's requirements, Enness will help you understand the options for your client and negotiate a deal that will maximise how much your client can borrow, as well as secure the best rates and terms for them.
My client was turned down for finance. What can Enness do?
When your client has been turned down for finance, it can be hard to know what to do next, especially if you have exhausted your network of lenders or you are effectively 'against the clock'. We regularly work with clients and introducers who lenders have turned down for finance. Provided there is a solid background that supports lending, we can often step in and broker finance successfully.
Just because your client has been turned down for finance, it is not necessarily the case that your client won't be able to borrow at all. It is usually more a question of determining what facts to present to lenders (and how to do this most effectively) and, often, approaching specialist lenders. We regularly broker high-value finance for clients who have not managed to get a loan by approaching lenders directly or who have been turned down by large banks.
My client doesn't live full-time in Dubai/is an expat, can you still broker finance?
Yes. We can work with clients with links to Dubai and the Emirates, wherever they reside. You may be based in Dubai but work with expats and non-residents, or your clients may only live in Dubai part-time, or they may be globally mobile. Alternatively, you may not be based in the UAE but work with Emirati clients. Whatever your client's nationality or country of residence, we will be able to broker finance.
My client needs finance for an international project. Can Enness help?
Yes – Enness is a specialist in international and cross-border finance. We regularly broker finance for clients who want to use the loan outside Dubai, be this in the UK, France, other European countries, the Americas or Asia.
Many of our clients in Dubai have global investments and assets. They may want to use debt in the Emirates or further afield to buy real estate, invest, grow a business, buy assets or pursue projects. Provided your client's background, wealth and assets support borrowing, we can broker loans that will be used anywhere in the world.
My client is in a tight spot and needs finance fast. What do I do?
Enness is often approached by introducers who need a solution quickly, whether that's so your client can capture an opportunity or solve a problem. The team has a track record of brokering finance quickly depending on your client's assets – in some cases, so that your client can draw down funds in 1-2 weeks. Whatever the scenario – get in touch. Enness will help come up with a short, medium and long-term game plan that will see your client get the finance they need as quickly as possible.
