Every business wants to make the most of cash-on-hand when they have it. Ledyard offers a full range of cash management services, including the latest online banking solutions, to help optimize your cash flow and maximize the return on it.
Every business has inherent risks. Some can be predicted and minimized, others can’t.

So, we can work with you to identify those risks and plan accordingly - improving your business’s long-term viability.
Purchasing equipment for your business seems like an easy decision, but there’s a lot to consider. Should you buy or lease? What type of financing will be the most cost-effective? How will this decision affect your cash flow? Ledyard provides the guidance necessary to acquire the equipment you need while maintaining a successful cash management strategy.
Real Estate Considerations
As with equipment needs, businesses must do a cost/benefit analysis when faced with whether to buy or lease real estate. The decision is a critical one because of the significant demand it may have on capital reserves. Ledyard has the experience to guide you through that process and the potential pitfalls, along with a full line of lending options to achieve your real estate needs.
