Funding adapts in line with your business

Independent and well capitalised

Offering the flexibility of an independent provider, combined with the financial strength of our merchant bank parentage, we really do offer the best of both worlds.

Unlike other traditional forms of finance, our portfolio of products is designed to provide stability for your business without restricting change and growth. In fact, our funding adapts in line with your business, which is why we don't consider ourselves just a financial provider, but a long-term business partner.

Our awards

Our high quality products and commitment to service excellence are widely recognised. We are honoured to have won numerous industry awards.

David Thomson, CEO

I've worked within the finance industry for more than 25 years and came to Close Brothers Invoice Finance in 2002, having previously held positions at HSBC and Barclays. I've overseen a period of expansion, repositioning the business as a product and service leader within our sector. My vision is to continue to build new and strengthen existing relationships with customers and our financial advisory community, whilst driving our ambition to educate businesses about the merits of asset based finance as a long-term, viable funding solution.
