looking to grow
Working with us
When we started our business in 2000, we set out with a clear goal: to offer financial support to the small and medium businesses that need it, but that are often overlooked by other lenders. Since then we’ve provided millions in funding to SMEs across the UK, allowing them to take on challenges that would otherwise have been impossible.
We’re a family-run business, so we understand what running a small company means. We’ve faced many of the challenges ourselves, putting us in the perfect position to help you solve them. It’s that family ethos that runs through everything we do – just as each customer matters to you, you matter to us.
The Initial Chat
Talking about money can seem a little intimidating, but not with us. Our first conversation will have no strings attached, and almost certainly involve a hot drink.
We’ll just work out what kind of support you need and talk about how we could help provide it.
The support you need
If you decide to go ahead with us, we’ll get started with the support that’s right for you.
We’ll walk you through every step of the process so you always know what’s happening and what to expect next. Afterall, a partnership is a two way thing.
Some lenders will just provide your funds and leave you to it. That’s not us – we’re with you for the journey.
You’ll always be able to contact us with any questions and to sort out any further assistance.
The world is changing, fast. That’s why we’re always investing in the latest technology to give you the funding you need to compete. But that technology doesn’t work on its own – it works with dedicated people who will understand your unique situation.
It’s not a case of just pumping numbers into a machine and leaving it to do its thing. It’s the best of both worlds – decisions made by people, powered by technology.
