BLACKBURN 25th January 2024 —

AFS Group, consisting of Asset Finance Solutions, Synergy Commercial Finance, and AFS Compliance, is delighted to announce a significant milestone as the company surpasses the 50-employee mark. This achievement comes after a year-long recruitment drive aimed at fortifying key areas within the business, including systems and IT support, marketing, and finance.

The expansion is in response to the company’s remarkable success in more than doubling its usual intake of new Appointed Representatives over the past 12 months. Despite a commendably low staff turnover and a commitment to internal promotions, AFS Group welcomed new talent to expand the exceptional level of support provided to its brokers and funders.

Group CEO Nick Simpson expressed his thoughts on this accomplishment, stating, “When we founded AFS as an asset finance brokerage 19 years ago, our aspiration was to achieve the success we enjoy today – forming a high-quality, high-performing collective of brokers, respected throughout the industry. Our growth has been consistent, and while reaching the 50-employee milestone is an important indicator of our growth, expansion has never come at the expense of the support quality we offer. Over the past 12 months, we have made some excellent appointments, attracting top talent from across the finance industry that have brought fresh momentum to our business.”

The Group plans to continue to recruit as and when opportunity requires. Interested parties should contact
