The Biggest Mistake CFOs Make When Raising Debt
Axial knows that raising capital is a time-intensive, complex process for any CFO or CEO. To try to make that process a little easier, they asked four lenders to share the biggest mistakes management teams make when raising capital.
Jeff Pfeffer of CapX Partners says “Often CFOs and CEOs focus on the cost of their debt capital as being the most important attribute to achieving an optimal capital structure… Knowing your debt provider and constructing a debt agreement that best supports the unknowns that can impact your business can be just as important or more than the price of the debt.”
David M. Anderson of Capital One Healthcare says “I believe many CEOs and CFOs could improve their capital raising experience and outcomes by having a more active relationship management strategy.“
