The service provided was exceptional. The competitive process JDC ran and their connections with lenders meant we had a range of lending options to choose from and we are in no doubt that we have secured the best possible financing deal. JDC’s advice was clear and consistent throughout a complex process and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for advisers who can make a real difference and add value to their business.
