We recognise your needs, challenges - and frustrations
We get it
We know what it’s like to be an SME – we’ve run our own. We’ve also worked for the big banks who often don’t think small enough.
You’ll always have someone to talk to, including a Relationship Manager who’ll get to know you, your business and your ambitions.
We don’t delay
Time’s precious. So we short-cut access to our decision makers and use class-leading technology to speed up our processes.
Tailored solutions, not tick-box lending
‘Tick-box’ lending doesn’t fly with us because our customers rarely fit boxes. Our common-sense approach combines a human touch with class-leading technology to create flexible products that fit your unique business circumstances and individual needs.

Quick tips to survive and thrive post COVID19
Stay close to your customers. Don’t underestimate the value in simply making your customers aware you’re still around.
Put relationships before profit. Going that extra mile to support your customers is likely to place you in pole position for a swift recovery.
Get your strategic house in order. Your mission, marketing position, brand strategy, now is the time to tackle them.
Celebrate small wins. A repeat order, an early payment, a new client. Anything that flies in the face of the current tide, raise a glass!
Show your appreciation. Be sure to take time to recognise and thank your colleagues. The smallest gestures can go a long way in demonstrating just how much you value your people.
Be kind to yourself. It may seem counterintuitive to take your foot off the gas, but rest aids productivity, not to mention sanity. So recognise this and be disciplined about taking some proper downtime.
