GL Capital, Graham Langley & Our Expertise


GL Capital is headed up by CEO Graham Langley. Networker extraordinaire and well known and respected figure on the Scottish business scene, Graham leverages his 35 years’ experience, which culminated in him heading up the Business Development team at RBS Commercial based in Edinburgh, with a range of business interests, directorships and consultancy clients under the umbrella of GL Capital Ltd.

Following on from establishing Tiger Advisers, the boutique Corporate Finance firm, Graham’s personal achievements include refinancing several large property portfolios and hotels, sourcing equity and debt funding for a number of SMEs and undertaking exec and non-exec directorships where he is an energetic and hands-on member of the board for a variety of organisations.

Graham is never afraid to go with the quirky and unusual as long as there’s a strong business idea on the table. Hence his commercial interests have included everything from being involved in the launch of what is believed to be the first luxury Japanese-Scottish fusion whisky, to social enterprise pubs and ‘Curry in a Kilt’ – a street food start up that introduced the South African Bunny Chow concept to an enthusiastic Edinburgh public during the Edinburgh Festival!

Utilising his proven negotiating, deal making and canny investing talents, Graham works with a select team of professionals, all expert in their fields, to provide strategic business development advice and/or corporate finance for SMEs, start ups with great potential and anything that catches his eagle business eye.
