Business Finance for Business People

As a business finance broker based in Southampton I deal with all types of commercial finance requirements for all types of businesses throughout Hampshire and Dorset. As commercial finance brokers our client base is diverse and we have raised business finance for all sorts of clients from areas such as Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Winchester, Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.

We have assisted clients across a range of industries, from property developments, to pubs, shops, and care homes, and anything in between.

As a commercial finance broker, with a career and track record in the banking and finance industry, I will take the time to understand your clients’ needs to ensure that I find the right finance for my clients, right in every respect.

ASC take away the hassle of endless form filling, stacks of paperwork leaving our clients to do what they do best – running and growing their business!

Prior to joining ASC Finance for Business, I spent several years working in the banking and finance sector.

My experience in this field, coupled with ASC’s track record in raising business finance for over 45 years, means that I am well placed in the market to ensure that we can secure the right finance for my clients.

We work closely with our clients from the initial enquiry through to loan offer.

No call centres, just simple direct communication and a commitment to delivering the highest standards of customer service.

Contact me, with no obligation, to find out how I can help you arrange the right finance for your business across the Hampshire and Dorset regions.

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than completing a deal on a business purchase that helps a client to move in a new direction and improve their business.

Business Finance I have assisted clients with already

  • ASC assisted a client in refinancing their commercial investment property in Southampton.
  • £500,000 raised for an existing client to raise further finance to expand his chain of furniture retail outlets.
  • We were able to raise finance for a client to purchase a guesthouse in the Isle of Wight.
