We have worked with some of the most forward-thinking individuals in the UK for more than three centuries and we stand by entrepreneurs when it counts.

Our approach

We never underestimate the power of an idea and the hard work it takes to turn a concept into a successful business. With an expert eye on family dynamics and the personal implications of business evolution, we will support you through each step of your entrepreneurial journey.

Our Entrepreneurs team will take time to understand your immediate aims and vision for the future, providing a seamless, bespoke banking service that allows you to focus on developing your business.

Furthermore, with a thriving network of entrepreneurs spanning several generations, we can make relevant introductions and enable collaborations where this is helpful.


Our independence and the partners’ unlimited liability allow us to deliver flexible, rapid lending decisions. Looking beyond immediate circumstances, we enjoy crafting bespoke lending facilities to help you achieve your goals.

Liquidity management

Always discreet and focused on detail, we provide a safe and stable home for your capital as you adjust to life after exit.

Beyond business 

The sale of a business can often be the making of an entrepreneur. We will work closely with you to prepare for an impending sale and the reality of closing your business, while our philanthropy and next-generation services can help create a fitting legacy for your achievements.


As a customer of C. Hoare & Co., you join an influential community. We hold regular events where entrepreneurs have the opportunity to share ideas and experience and build their professional network.
