About Us

Headquartered in the village of Chilworth, two miles from Central Southampton, we are a local business with a national presence. Many of the people who work in the business have strong relevant experience in the areas in which they work. We also recruit from outside our industry and have found that this mix of experience and freshness enables us to bring an unparalleled level of understanding to the needs and wants of our partners and suppliers.

Constantly evolving and developing we strive to provide a level of service that sees our customers and partners coming back to us time and time again.

We’ve set our own target level of responding with credit decisions within 4 – 6 hours but we average a 1 hour turn around for 98% on all applications and with rates from 2.95% we provide funding for some of the UK’s largest corporates to new start businesses.

We actively encourage applications from new start ventures and young business as we believe in helping companies when they most need our help.

We know all our customers have a choice but given the opportunity we work hard to deliver on our promise to help your business to flourish.
