Dave Rowlands (Director, Equipment Finance Solutions Ltd) has many years in the finance industry, working for over 20 years within the Technology Finance sector for ECS, Cisco Capital and CIT before forming his own brokerage Equipment Finance Solutions Ltd.
‘Before partnering with AFS (UK) Ltd we have been using another back office service provider but found the service levels were very hit and miss’ said David. ‘It’s vital to our business that whilst we are servicing our clients front end that the funding and administration back end is working seamlessly. EFS are now comfortable signing up to a long term partnership with AFS after spending a good period working with Lee Simms, Justin Ford and the team in Blackburn.’
The experience that Equipment Finance Solutions Ltd had of a network was extremely different to the one that Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd offer. At AFS (UK) Ltd our network members work independently, talking to funders directly about their customers and finding the very best solutions for them. AFS (UK) Ltd provide the over arching framework and support that network members need to adhere to in order to remain compliant, however, how they work, where they place their business and their day to day activities are all managed by the members themselves
David adds ‘ Initially, I was attracted to the dedicated compliance team that AFS (UK) Ltd has but after talking to Lee Simms (Sales Director, Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd) I realised there was much more to it than that. The overall back up that I receive enables me to spend so much more time doing what I actually came into this industry to do, help my customers. This coupled with a very large range of funders and the support of other network members made this step a no-brainer. It wont just be me that benefits from this relationship but my customers aswell.’
Dave continues ‘keeping up with the ever changing landscape of FCA regulation is extremely time consuming, at AFS (UK) Ltd I know that all of the processes and procedures are in place allowing me to spend more time building my business and really getting to know my customers. AFS (UK) Ltd aim to help every network member be as successful as they can possibly be and my induction in Blackburn showed me that this ethos runs through every employee there.’
Equipment Finance Solutions Ltd is based in the West Midlands and specialises in financing technology and renewable solutions, although with access to the funding panel of AFS (UK) Ltd all assets can now be considered.
Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd are delighted to have Dave on board and wish him and everyone at Equipment Finance Solutions Ltd the very best for the future.
