BROADCAST & MEDIA
Like any technology-driven organisation, media companies need to keep their equipment up to date to remain competitive and win new business. Technology changes fast, so remaining at the top of your field can be expensive and affect your cash flow. This is why GSM has specialised in providing asset finance for media, broadcast, live events and AV companies and over the past two decades have become a market leader in sourcing a range of alternative finance.
Camera, audio-visual and broadcast equipment isn’t cheap; outright purchases are major investments that use up your working capital and affect cashflow management. Portable studios and sets, camera vehicles, mixing and editing equipment, monitors, laptops and everything back at the studio… it all adds up, but it’s all essential to produce the right quality footage and audio to keep the clients happy and to win new work.
Asset financing for media equipment, IT and communications infrastructure, and even your office fit-out, transforms the way you can do business. Rather than a large up-front capital outlay, you have predictable, achievable repayments.
GSM Finance help media, recording and broadcast companies to get more for their money, keep cash in the bank and remain agile and mobile through asset financing of essential equipment. GSM are able to arrange alternative finance deals such as hire purchase, leasing and business loans that will complement your business.
An example of equipment that GSM can finance:
Amps and speakers
Audio Visual Equipment
Outside broadcast Equipment
Post Production Equipment
Sound Stage Equipment
VFX Editing Suites
Example Finance Deal
Broadcast and Media alternative finance deals come in a variety of shapes and sizes and we are able to arrange finance on equipment from £5,000 up to £5,000,000.
Previously we have structured hire purchase and lease deals for £10,000 camera drones to the full kit out of a London recording studio. Asset Finance has been essential for our clients in ensuring they stay at the top of this industry and without these alternative finance products would struggle to access these essential assets.
"GSM have been a pivotal key to our on going success over the last ten years. For them it's never been about quickly selling us finance, as from the beginning they listened to our present and future needs which is a major plus, as trying to understand simple or complex companies is difficult enough but once under the skin of the business they have continued over the years to give ongoing support and advice as and when required, so easy to do business with and if you can use the word 'pleasure' in the finance world, then they put a big tick the box for us!"
