It’s been a busy old week for us at Asset Finance Solutions (AFS) because on Tuesday and Wednesday we were exhibiting at the inaugural Business Funding Show in London and then also on Wednesday we had a dash up the M1 to attend an important agricultural machinery show near York.
But first the Business Funding Show that was held at Old Billingsgate, the historic market building that has recently been transformed onto one of London’s premier event spaces. Breaking new ground, the Show presented a unique meeting place for two key groups in the UK economy – on the one hand were entrepreneurs looking for funding, while there to assist were many of the leading finance and service providers. Including Asset Finance Solutions.
As the UK’s leading independent funding provider AFS was in a perfect position to be of assistance, which is why so many business people and organisations made a beeline for our stand. They had obviously heard about our unique and extensive funding panel and they were keen to discover more about it at first hand.
We have to say that virtually everyone we spoke to, almost without exception, was astounded and delighted to discover the extent of our asset finance funding panel. What really got them excited though was the sheer scale of the panel, which numbers in excess of sixty funders. Not only that, but many enquirers could hardly believe just how comprehensive and competitive the options were, including it has to be said, many specialist and niche market funding providers who are able to meet the needs of businesses operating in what have traditionally been difficult to fund market sectors.
One fact that was certainly not lost on the majority of the people we spoke to was that compared to the restricted in-house funding opportunities provided by banks and conventional financial institutions, the AFS funding Solutions with their unprecedented choice and attractive rates were immensely appealing.
But that was only one aspect of our two days at the show. We were also approached by many finance brokers who were anxious to develop their own businesses and wanted to find out as much as they could about our Franchising opportunities. We were able to reassure them that as an Appointed Representative they would be able to retain their own identity and independence and would also be able to tap into our full panel of funding facilities. As a Principal Company we are also in a position to help them obtain the necessary FCA Authorisation without them having to commit to the frightening cost and effort demanded by direct authorisation.
