Helping UK businesses to invest

Flexible lending initiatives

It's our aim to provide businesses with flexible funding options to help them invest.

That’s why we offer flexible lending measures like capital-free periods, extended lending terms, and funding for trading business premises up to 100% value, subject to lending criteria.

What’s more, we’ve introduced a series of initiatives designed to provide businesses with improved levels of working capital through invoice finance whilst continuing to support capital expenditure through a range of competitive asset finance solutions.

Whatever the banking needs of UK businesses are, we’re here to help.
