And the award goes to Close Brothers

We have once again been named the UK’s Best Factoring & Invoice Discounting Provider at the annual Business Moneyfacts awards, which was held at the prestigious Lancaster London, Hotel on Thursday 19th March.

The evening was hosted by comedian Ed Byrne, and judged by the intermediary and SME community. It's one of the largest awards ceremonies on the business finance calendar, attracting over 500 industry professionals.

Head of Sales for invoice finance and ABL, Paul Stephens, said: “We’re so pleased to have been named the UK’s Best Factoring and Invoice Discounting Provider for the second year in a row as there was some pretty tough competition.

“This win demonstrates the dedication and commitment of our teams in the UK and Ireland to improving access to finance for business owners.

“Many SMEs continue to struggle to obtain appropriate finance and that is why we are working hard to increase awareness of the benefits of invoice finance and asset based lending as a sustainable form of business funding. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and intermediaries who voted for us and for their continued support,” he added.
