a 3-month trial pilot project.

Our team has a tried and tested approach that helps protect your business and customer relationships. We help you recognise and resolve issues before they become a barrier to payment. When action is necessary we make it efficient and effective.

New Clients Onboarding

Our onboarding protocols ensure that our clients get the full benefits of our expertise and service from the moment we engage. Doing things the GK way means more than just a sustained, effective job well done. It’s about delivering the partnership, trust, and results our clients deserve.

After cases arrive
We assess each case in our usual way, setting a strategy, grading and reporting on the case in terms of prospects and timescales and cost. We make immediate contact with debtors, and pursue a recovery in our normal tried and tested ways
Reporting to you
We deliver to you ongoing, structured, tailored reports as per your needs and preferences. We carry out a full review each quarter with you, where we look at cases and patterns and at any opportunities to improve.

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business. We have designed our pilot projects to give lenders and creditors the comfort and confidence in our service before formally and fully switching recoveries providers. This time also allows new clients to benchmark our service levers and results against existing providers and others.

How it works


You choose 10 recoveries cases

You choose 10 recoveries cases to get us started. We’ll deliver our usual onboarding protocol where we’ll get to know you and your systems, culture, methods, preferences, and requirements.


We get started

We assess each case by setting a strategy then grading and reporting on the case in terms of prospects and timescales and cost. We make immediate contact with debtors, and pursue a recovery in our tried and tested ways.


We review

We deliver ongoing, structured, tailored reports as per your needs and carry out a full 3-month review on these 20 cases. There we’ll discuss how we have worked together, patterns we have seen in your borrowers, your systems, your documents, your pre-legal conduct, outcomes, highs and lows, legal costs (and costs borne by debtors), and possible improvements in all of these.


No strings

We carry on working in this way until all cases have been concluded. You are then free to carry on your discussions with us or to use the experience and market intelligence gained by working with us in the future.

Lenders and creditors have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by engaging with us on a pilot project.
