This week we are delighted to welcome two new brokers to the Synergy network of Appointed Representatives.  This time it is Chris Ambler and Neal Ashwood, who have been operating as brokers for our sister company Asset Finance Solutions since the end of 2018.  As highly experienced business finance professionals, and now with the added strength and support of Synergy Commercial Finance behind them, Chris and Neal are perfectly placed to provide the kind of unbeatable business finance solutions that have propelled Synergy into becoming the UK’s most go-ahead and successful commercial finance provider.

The duo’s financial sector experience was in largely in Asset Finance &  and more recently in commercial banking. After finding that they were coming across many commercial finance opportunities via their professional contacts, it made sense to add the Synergy panel of funders and begin handling these cases in-house.

Chris and Neal have re-established old contacts and have begun to build their brand in the marketplace throughout their time at Asset Finance Solutions. Through AFS, they have supported traditional Asset Finance deals such as HGVs, Van & Cars and more recently have helped two customers with their IT needs including procurement of the goods. They have also added new member to the team in the last month.

When asked about how he plans to leverage his newfound status as a Synergy AR, Chris responded: “We are strong networkers and have lots of professional services contacts. This is an ideal opportunity for us detail our expanded offering now we have a Synergy franchise. There are not many scenarios that we cannot now handle and this gives us lots of topics to talk to people about. Our view is that the High Street banks are constantly changing their relationship management structure, meaning SMEs are looking for support from different providers and this is an area which we intend to take advantage of and we are currently working on a strategy to maximise opportunities.”
