Zoom is either your new best friend or your worst nightmare, but here at Asset Finance Solutions we love it! It has considerably helped us keep in touch with our colleagues, funders and especially communicating with our network of brokers throughout these difficult times.

Last Monday, Helen Gaines from BNP Paribas kindly hosted an exclusive zoom meeting for our brokers alongside her colleagues, Maddison Winning and Tim Pulleyn, discussing their credit policy and market appetite along with a presentation on their proposal system.

This was a fantastic opportunity for our brokers to gain more knowledge and understanding about the  BNP Paribas offering and to ask any questions directly to a member of the team.

“We were delighted this week to join a Zoom call with members of the AFS AR network. BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions have seen a significant increase in the level of engagement with AFS over the last 6-12months, helped by great support from Nick, Justin and Lee, as well as positive feedback from AR’s on the service experience with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions.

The Zoom call was a great opportunity for us to widen awareness of the BNP Paribas proposition and gave us the platform to outline our credit appetite, key market sectors and how our technology solutions, such as E-sign, are allowing the business to be transacted in an efficient manner despite the challenges posed by current lockdown restrictions.

We are committed to continuing growing our footprint with AFS, as part of a wider support for the UK broker market and we are confident that, meetings such as this, will be hugely beneficial; in terms of future business growth and we look forward to having the opportunity to widening the relationship with AFS.” – Helen Gaines, BNP Paribas

‘It was great to have Helen, Maddison and Tim on the call letting us know exactly what BNP Paribas like and where they currently sit in the market. It is essential for our brokers to have a thorough understanding of the funders especially in times like this where funders are maybe looking to amend their credit policies due to recent events. Calls like this enable our brokers to find the right solution for their customers promptly and efficiently in what feels at the moment to be an ever-changing landscape. – Lee Simms, AFS Sales Director

Keeping strong communications flowing between our broker network and our extensive panel of funders is one of the many benefits that are included in our package when joining Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd.

“As a relatively new Franchisee, I haven’t been with AFS that long. BNP  Paribas wasn’t a funder that was on the panel at my previous brokerage, so I never had the opportunity to use them before. It was really helpful for me to get the basics of what they do, what markets they are in and where they position themselves in regards to risk tiers and pricing. I will definitely be looking at them as an option in terms of funding for us.” – Karl Lanham, Complete Commercial Finance Ltd (AFS Appointed Representative)

We would like to thank Helen and her team at BNP Paribas for the time and effort they took in providing this information for our brokers and if you are looking to join our network or even to discuss more of the benefits we have to offer, please don’t hesitate to contact Justin Ford on 07740095701 or Lee Simms on 07894019445.
