Business Finance for Business People

I am an experienced business finance broker based in Scotland and I work to help SME owners to obtain commercial finance, business finance and property finance throughout Scotland. If you are small business owner who is looking for a commercial mortgage, any type of property investment finance or business re-finance then as a commercial finance broker who has experience of the business finance requirements of business owners in Scotland I can assist you.

My team and I work across Scotland with three main bases, Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow but regularly visit many other parts of Scotland. We take time to understand our clients and their requirements, meeting face to face where possible. 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 to find out how I can help you arrange the right finance for your business in Scotland.

As a commercial finance broker in Scotland, my team and I have worked with clients across all sectors notably the leisure sector assisting with obtaining commercial finance for not just B&B’s, hotels and caravan parks but also arranging business re-finance for restaurants and cafes.

We’ve helped property developers with property finance for single new-build properties, finance for property refurbishments and commercial conversions, to property investment finance for larger multi-unit builds. Our client base is diverse and we are confident we can assist you with whatever commercial funding requirements you have in Scotland.

I am a Chartered Accountant with a strong background in change management and performance improvement across a number of industry sectors.

Being based in Scotland I am fortunate to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery through, golf, running, biking, and hiking, and through ASC I am also able to enjoy helping my clients achieve their dreams and goals.

ASC successfully raised finance for a group of property investors on the East Coast of Scotland to make their first acquisition.

Having successfully arranged finance for a client’s care home 5 years ago, they recently returned to ASC Finance, to secure a commercial loan of £985,000 to purchase and start - up a second care home.

We were able to refinance a commercial loan of over £300,000 for a client to repay a builder which he had used to carry out improvements to the commercial property.

We arranged a commercial loan of £400,000 for a long - established solicitors’ practice to consolidate their debts and provide additional working capital.

We raised £250,000 to help a wholesaler in Peterborough expand its operations.

ASC Finance arranged £10.5 million of development finance arranged for the purchase and construction of 11 townhouses.

We arranged a £300,000 commercial mortgage for a green-grocer in Cambridge to expand their business.

ASC arranged commercial finance of £276,000 for a car parts wholesaler to relocate and expand their business.

We assisted in the purchase of a large pub in a busy Warwickshire town. At a 60% LTV we got to completion with a High Street Bank in less than six weeks from the first enquiry.


Our client Paul Hughes was introduced to ASC by his mortgage broker. Our client had obtained planning permission to construct 14 apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, on an unencumbered development site.

ASC approached various development lenders and successfully found a lender to offer Paul the required development finance to commence works on the project. The project has successfully been completed.

Another success story for ASC.
