If ever evidence was needed to prove that you can teach an old dog new tricks, then this is it, as we congratulate our Sales Director, Lee Simms for passing the LIBF Level 5 Diploma in Asset Finance with flying colours!

Lee has been studying for the diploma since early 2020 and sat his final exam in May 2021.

Lee adds, “I’ve always enjoyed learning and developing my knowledge, so I leapt at the chance to enrol on this course. When I left school, I studied Zoology at The University of Reading, and it’s fair to say my career path has shifted a little since then!”

With Justin Ford, Operations Director, and Lynda Bate, Business Development Manager, both having completed the LIBF Level 5 Diploma in Asset Finance, Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd is proud to now have 3 qualified members.

Lee comments, “I was fortunate enough to be at Lombard earlier on in my career when their training courses were top notch and the experience of the team around you was unbelievable. It must be tough trying to get into the industry now with in-depth training less and less common and face to face interaction with work colleagues dramatically reduced.”

Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd takes pride in giving its employees the opportunity to advance in their careers and be the greatest versions of themselves and believes that everyone should be given the opportunity to further develop their knowledge. Therefore, the board of directors created The Finance Broker Academy to fill the training gap that has arisen in the broker world.

The Finance Broker Academy provide a comprehensive training programme that covers all aspects of the broker world from product knowledge and credit skills to compliance, business skills, and marketing. The content for the course has been developed by brokers for brokers with input from a range of experienced people in the asset finance industry.
