We are genuinely independent, wholly impartial and we offer straightforward honest advice, given freely and without obligation. Through our established Lender Partner network, we give you immediate access to over 250 UK based Commercial Lenders and Private Banks. All of these Partners have funds available to lend and are keen to support the right proposition. We deal with high street lenders and challenger banks through to many of the new alternative & specialist funding providers. At Lochend Finance, we will quickly assess all the available funding options for you or your project and we will do everything possible to find a workable and affordable business solution.
We take the hassle out of raising finance and save you a great deal of time in the process, freeing you up to focus on running and growing your business. We act for you, not the lender therefore you can be assured we will search the marketplace for the best funding package available that meets your needs. Many lenders only deal with authorised and regulated Commercial & Asset Finance brokers such as Lochend Finance therefore, we unlock funding not available to clients directly.
