How Synergy Commercial Finance is helping business finance brokers to set up their own independent, compliant and profitable broker business

There’s no getting away from it, the past few months have been a difficult time for most businesses, including many commercial finance brokers, finance houses and banks.  We know that there are lots of highly experienced business finance brokers who have been furloughed or even made redundant. Many of these are now without doubt extremely concerned about their future, but in actual fact, despite the uncertainty, this could actually be the catalyst for a new start and a new career working for themselves. If you are among those who have been furloughed or made redundant, then with the help of Synergy Commercial Finance you could very soon become part of our national network of independent, fully FCA compliant … and profitable business finance brokers.

The old saying goes: ‘as one door closes … another door opens’ and for experienced business finance brokers it has never been more true.

Throughout the coronavirus crisis, Synergy Commercial Finance has continued to assist business finance brokers and now, as the lockdown is slowly eased, more and more companies are getting back to work and the need for business finance support has never been greater.

In fact, it is true to say that if you have the experience and ambition then now is an ideal opportunity to think seriously about working for yourself and joining our network.

Thanks to Synergy Commercial Finance it has never been easier.  It has never been so risk-free.  There has never been so much support available.  Or more assurance of future success.

Synergy Commercial Finance has been operating under AFS Compliance Ltd, an FCA directly approved ‘principal’ since January 2015, providing franchisees with all the systems and information to meet the demands and obligations of the FCA regulatory responsibilities.  Despite the fact that you own and run your own independent finance brokerage, this is an assured, quick, economical and effective alternative to FCA direct authorisation.

It means you can be up and running compliantly within a very short space of time and without the enormous cost of direct authorisation.

The other key factor of establishing your own finance brokerage is the unique level of practical support that Synergy Commercial Finance provides.

It is all part of our Broker in a Box support package that includes:

  • Access to over 200 funding sources, including high street and specialist market providers
  • Our support package starts with a two-day induction and continues with training, sales and marketing support, peer support, regular training and meeting events and the latest industry insights to assist your day-to-day business needs.
  • Access to a bespoke proposal management system, online funding, asset finance quotation and funder guidance systems.
  • Full IT support
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • NACFB membership and FSB Membership
  • Access to CAP and Creditsafe.
  • Qualified compliance team and experienced sales team are on hand to assist in all of your regulatory responsibilities and sales queries

In other words, we take care of all the stress, hassle and complication of being a successful broker and we’ve packaged everything into our ‘Broker in a Box’ support package.

It really couldn’t be simpler.  So while the present may appear bleak … the future could not be brighter.  To discover all about how Synergy can help you set up your own business finance brokers and how we continue to support you on an ongoing daily basis, call us and talk to us now.  You can call us on 01904 481 786.    You can also email: or you can send a message using the online form on our Contact page.
