Independent and well capitalised

Independent and well capitalised

Offering the flexibility of an independent provider, combined with the financial strength of our merchant bank parentage, we really do offer the best of both worlds.

Unlike other traditional forms of finance, our portfolio of products is designed to provide stability for your business without restricting change and growth. In fact, our funding adapts in line with your business, which is why we don’t consider ourselves just a financial provider, but a long-term business partner.
