Our Lenders

As both a lender and a broker, Portman Asset Finance work with a number of specialist lending partners. Many of our partners only work through brokers, have specialist acceptance criteria, offer a distinct financial product, or support particular sectors of the market. Where Portman ourselves are not able to provide your funds, we work across the market to match your needs with the right lender, giving customers like you the best chance of acceptance. We deal directly with the lender at our agreed terms and complete the majority of paperwork on your behalf. We find the right deal for your business.
