NACFB Asset Finance Lender of the Year 2020

Close Brothers Business Finance is proud to be named the NACFB’S Asset Finance Lender of the Year.

To win this accolade in any normal year would be a fantastic achievement, but to win in such an unprecedented year is testament to the hard work and dedication by the whole team at Close Brothers Business Finance.

This prestigious industry award is unique because it is awarded based on feedback from a Broker judging panel and votes from Finance Brokers, and to be recognised by both groups is a special achievement.

“While we would like to thank every member of our team who greatly deserve the recognition that this award brings, we would also like to acknowledge our network of Brokers who work just as hard to deliver financial support to the UK SME market through all conditions,” said Ian Aitchison, Managing Director, Close Brothers Business Finance. “Throughout the crisis, we’ve been meeting with brokers via video conference to ensure they understood we are still open for business and clarified our strong CBILS appetite, while also assisting them with their marketing efforts.

“But not only have we been working with the larger brokerage businesses, who provide a high volume of deals each month, we also work with smaller, specialist brokers and sole traders who may only bring to us a few deals a year; however, we feel it is important to support our whole network with the same values and consideration.”
