Leasing Life’s SME Champion Bank Lessor 2020

Close Brothers Asset Finance is delighted to be named Leasing Life’s SME Champion Bank Lessor for the second successive year.

This prestigious award is recognition for the support we have provided customers – both new and existing – during the C19 pandemic, when we drew strongly on our proud heritage of lending through all economic cycles.

“We are in a position to do this because of our prudent lending model,” explained Neil Davies, CEO, Close Brothers Commercial. “This is important because it gives our customers, staff and investors the reassurance we’re here for the long-term and can be counted on in good times and in bad.

“As part of the Close Brothers Group, the company’s deep-rooted understanding of its customers - who operate across a range of key industries, including transport, print, construction, manufacturing and renewable energy - is unrivalled. Our policy of employing specialists in their respective fields means we speak the same language as our customers and are able to advise and empathise in equal measure.”

Neil added that the vision and values and the delivery of a focused customer service has been an important reason for our – and our customers’ – success.

“The partnership between Close Brothers Asset Finance and its customers is one of mutual benefit and respect. Employees go out of their way – truly going the extra mile in some instances – to meet their clients, to know them, understand them and work with and alongside them,” said Neil.

“I’d really like to congratulate the whole Close Brothers Asset Finance team for their incredibly hard work.”
