As the founder and Managing Director, yes that does make me feel old, but it also makes me feel incredibly proud.
A lot happened in 1992 when we first opened our doors, from my office in Croydon ( well kitchen table actually )...
... the Maastricht treaty was signed - founding the European Union, Euro Disney opened in Paris, Bill Clinton became the US President, the Queen celebrated her Ruby Jubilee, Prince Charles and Princess Diana divorced, Alan Shearer became the UK’s most expensive footballer, the Royal Mint introduced it’s new 10 pence piece and Jack Nicholson’s famous quote from A Few Good Men, “You can’t handle the truth!” became the catch phrase of the year!
When I started 26 years ago, I wanted to offer something different, realising that businesses, especially SMEs were not only finding finance complicated and confusing but they were forced to limit their options through lack of knowledge. I wanted to change that. I wanted to provide a full range of finance options, explained in plain English, with no jargon.
And so Capital Corporate Finance was founded. I was the first truly independent broker in the UK. I am very pleased to say I still hold that title, as well as now being the longest established independent broker too, being held in the highest regard throughout the industry. What’s more, I am one of the very few females in the business – in a male dominated industry this is one of the things I am most proud of.
In these 26 years my team and I have helped thousands of businesses up and down the UK to secure the finance solution that perfectly fits their business needs ensuring the best matched lender at the most competitive rates.
During this time I have become a leading expert witness in alternative finance and invoice factoring, and have watched invoice finance go from lending of last resort to the most popular form of alternative finance in the UK.
I am introduced by many banks when they are unable to find their customers finance from their own offerings. These relationships have developed from my integrity, honesty and knowledge of the entire finance market.
There’s so much more choice when financing a business than traditional banking:
R&D tax credits
merchant cash advances
All of which can be taken on a short or long term basis, with secured and unsecured options available.
Being 100% independent means we are bound by no contracts, no obligations and no targets. Our expert knowledge ensures that we approach the right lender to suit each business need, not a random scatter gun effect, which results in offers not refusals.
So, if you’re looking for business finance then look no further. Call me today on 07785 596053 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll show you just how easy it is to secure the right funding. I can even provide you with instant, indicative quotes to give you realistic representations of how much various funding options will cost you.
