How we can support you

Commercial lending can, at times, be complex. Our specialist broker team are highly experienced so when we assess a deal we will always look to understand the underlying strategy of the business as well as the immediate requirements to provide the most suitable solution.

Our Broker team are based across mainland UK and work closely with our business teams who support customers on a day to day basis. Our aim is to build strong relationships with brokers and provide a dedicated Broker Business Development Manager.

The team undertake an initial desktop review of deals, usually within 4 working hours and provide indicative terms where possible (subject to normal due diligence and credit underwriting). Where indicative terms are acceptable customers will be allocated a local Relationship Manager to undertake a full assessment and provide a credit backed offer within 7 working days of receiving all necessary information.
