Ultimate Finance wins top award at South West event PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 28 June 2016
Ultimate Finance has beaten six other lenders to be crowned the ‘Alternative Finance Provider of the Year’ at the prestigious South West Dealmakers Awards held at the Bristol Marriott.  

The event, which was attended by prominent members of the region’s legal, accountancy, banking and funding communities, was hosted by leading regional business magazine, South West Business Insider.

With winners of the various categories voted for by their peers, Business Insider reported that,

“Ultimate Finance was recognised for its increased lending across the South West as well as its continued expansion across the rest of the UK. It was also commended for its a wide range of clients and the growing portfolio of financing options it offers. It was described as the stand-out entry among its competition in the alternative finance provider category.”

Regional director of Ultimate Finance in the South West, Alastair Logan, is delighted to receive the award.

“To have been nominated by our peers is fantastic and shows that we must be getting things right,” he said.

“This has been reinforced when dealing with our introducer network and SMEs who tell us they are impressed with our range of funding options, flexible approach and speed of delivery.

“Although we have been awarded the Alternative Finance Provider of the Year, we would argue that asset-based lending is now competing directly with traditional forms of lending having progressed enormously over the last few years since the banking crisis.

“Businesses are no longer viewed as ‘being in trouble’ if they arrange an invoice finance facility. Instead a growing number of companies are frustrated that their growth is being held back because they have to wait so long for their invoices to be paid.”

“Our experienced team can quickly recognise companies with potential and supply them with the right funding solution to ease the pressure on their cashflow in order to help them to grow and become even more successful.

“As well as being proud to have won the award we are equally proud to have helped so many SMEs throughout the UK to achieve greater growth and profitability via our trade finance, asset finance and invoice finance options.”
