About us

We combine industry expertise with innovative, flexible funding solutions to support firms across the UK. Our range of products can be tailored to meet business' objectives such as improving cash flow or financing strategic events including mergers and acquisitions.

Close Brothers Invoice Finance

Our purpose is to help the people and businesses of Britain thrive over the long term.

To achieve this, all of our diverse, specialist businesses have a deep industry knowledge so they can understand the challenges and opportunities that our customers and clients face. We support the unique needs of our customers and clients to ensure that they thrive, rather than simply survive, whatever the market conditions.

Unlike other traditional forms of finance, our portfolio of products is designed to provide stability whilst enabling change and fuelling growth. Our funding adapts in line with your company turnover, which is why we don't consider ourselves just a financial provider, but a long-term business partner.
