The Team

The Team

Experienced, Knowledgeable, Reliable

Working with us means exactly that. No middle men, no central point of contact, no time wasting. Our lines of communication are short and all our clients have direct access to senior management.

In a world of crowdfunding, Fintec, platforms, apps and hands-off low touch management, we are resolutely old-school operators. We are more trading partners than providers of finance to our clients and we take the time to understand all aspects of their business. This means we are perfectly placed at all times to make supplier payments immediately, as and when they are required.

Our team stands ready at all times to make stock purchases on behalf of our clients, as soon as our clients notify us that they need stock from their suppliers, we make sure they get it. Fast.
