New business Connected Finance helps local companies to source funding with lenders “open for business”
With interest rates at an all-time low there has never been a better time to borrow – and yet the general view is that finance is hard to find in the current climate. While this may be true in relation to some high street banks, there are a wealth of alternative lenders out there who are very much open for business.
New Kent based commercial finance advisory, Connected Finance Ltd, aims to help local businesses grow and achieve their goals by assisting with their financing needs.
Owned by experienced commercial banker, Chris Hanlon, the firm will support local businesses in finding the appropriate funding solution for their requirements.
Chris explains, “We have over 275 lenders on our panel, across over 30 different finance products, so Connected Finance can deliver a truly bespoke solution tailored to business’s needs while also securing the best deal available in the market.
He adds, “It is not always easy knowing how to find the right deal and how to approach the lender. With 18 years’ experience of working as a lender, I know how to package an application appropriately to achieve the best outcome and therefore get the best deal.”
Property finance in particular can be challenging to obtain through traditional sources, with the high street banks showing significantly diminished appetite since the crash in 2008. However, there are a number of new lenders, from ‘challenger banks’ to specialist funders who have seen the opportunity and developed a strong offering in the sector.
Areas of specialism for the firm include; Property Development, Property Investment, Buy-to-Lets, Bridging Finance, Commercial Mortgages, Invoice Discounting, Asset Finance and General Business Loans.
Connected Finance provide a free, no-obligation discussion around a specific financing need or just for general advice on sourcing funding.
