Our Experience

With over 10 years’ experience in lending to businesses, we will advocate for you and your business and will give you the best possible chance at securing finance on the best possible terms.

The most common complaint we hear from business owners is that their bank relationship is either non-existent or changes far too often. That’s where Ashfords come in. We pride ourselves on our relationships with our business clients.

Working Capital & Trade Finance

A working capital loan (often an overdraft) is a loan that is taken to finance a company's day-to-day operations. These loans are not used to buy long-term assets or investments and are instead used to provide the funding that covers a company's short-term operational needs such as payroll and supplier invoices.

If you have a timing difference between your payments from customers and payments to suppliers, a working capital solution may be the key to bridging this gap.

Trade Finance

A handy solution that works particularly well for clients with international supply chains or offshore customers.

Receivables Finance

If your working capital always seems to be tied up while you await payment from customers, this could be an ideal solution.

Floorplan Finance

For businesses that carry heavy levels of stock.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Merger and acquisition (M&A) financing is generally tailored to suit the client's individual circumstances. It entails analysing the acquisition funding requirements and cash flow while considering the long-term business objectives.

 The most significant feature of M&A finance is the recognition that no two businesses are alike. Every M&A transaction is carefully proposed based on the client’s priorities and circumstances.

M&A finance is a bespoke form of finance designed to cater for the following situations: 

Management buy-outs

Buy-out of existing shareholders

M&A of businesses that add synergies to your existing business

Succession planning – intergenerational change and estate planning.

Expansion & Growth

Finance requirements for business expansion and growth can take many forms:

Setting up a new premises

Purchasing a new owner-occupied commercial property

Investment in research and development, large one-off stock purchases or property improvements.

Different banks offer different solutions. Our commitment is that we will partner you with the most suitable bank for your needs.
