Why should I use a finance broker?
Using Portman as a broker saves our customers a huge amount of effort. We take one set of details and collect one set of documents then go out into the market on your behalf. We approach lenders, have discussions, prepare proposals and complete paperwork so you don’t have to.
We have access to specialist lenders that do not work directly with business owners and cannot be found on the high street. Many lenders specialise in finance for particular industries or products, our expertise means we can match your needs with the right source of funding.
Maximise your chance of acceptance
Having been supporting SMEs for 15 years, we understand the financial market. We know which lenders are best at supporting businesses in different industries, which are best suited to firms with different trading histories and which are most likely to fund different assets.
At Portman we understand your best chance of success and will match you with the right lender. This limits the number of credit searches against your business. If required, we can also source a finance package made up of multiple lenders who each contribute part of the whole. Approaching a single lender yourself who may offer a straight yes or no to your entire finance needs can lead to a series of rejections, which ultimately damages your business’s credit rating. Our flexible method can offer you a greater chance of acceptance.
A very straight forward, and super speedy, service. We were assigned to Andrew and he really could not have be more professional and helpful. He took time to understand what we were looking for and based on that came up with the best possible route. Highly recommend!!Lottie Elmehagen
Worked hard to find the right deal
Rob worked hard to find the right product for me and get everything in place. He gave some good advice with regards to the products on the market. Very happy with the service and the regular updates.Tony Lewis
Simple process with quick turnaround
Portman, and Jack in particular, were easy to deal with and helped with some medium term funding requirements. The whole process was fairly straightforward and needed little work on our part. Definitely recommend.Mel Wright
Excellent service from Portman
I have used Portman Asset Finance before and I was pleased with the service I received the first time. When I contact them this time I spoke to Daniel Cooper who was really helpful and kept to his word and promises. I can not fault the service I received and I would highly recommend them. Much better than HSBC who I bank with.Ross Wilkins
