Accredo sponsors 2019's Commercial Finance Expo coffee cart


LONDON, Tuesday 18th June: The NACFB are delighted to announce that secured business finance lender, Accredo, will be sponsoring this year’s coffee cart at the NACFB Commercial Finance Expo.

Founded in 2000, Accredo provides business finance professionals with greater lending options for new starts, clients with difficult credit profiles and established businesses.

The Accredo team welcome all delegates at the cart and are keen to speak with delegates about how they can help their SME clients.

Accredo lends when others won’t. Looking at the whole picture to find the right secured commercial loan or lease for brokers’ clients, Accredo often finds solutions when all other avenues have been exhausted. A light-touch application process combined with quick decisions makes Accredo the perfect choice.


NACFB Expands into new office

The NACFB headquarters is on the move after seven years at Hamilton House. On Tuesday 26th June we are moving to:

33 Eastcheap, London, EC3M 1DT

Not a dramatic move geographically, but an important one nonetheless. I am keen to outline to you both why we have made this decision and how this will benefit the Association.

Hamilton House is a serviced office located in a building of some external charm on the Embankment, but once inside the premises do not stand up well to scrutiny. They are not fit for our purpose and certainly do not contribute to our plans of running an efficient Member Association with the best people in a pleasant and safe environment.

In addition, a planned sale of the building by the current landlords accentuated the potential operational risk of having only two months security of tenure. So, it was time to look for somewhere new.

At 33 Eastcheap we have secured office space that enables the whole team to work together in one room with some capacity to grow. We have a separate meeting room where we can run events rather than hiring external facilities. The building has been newly refurbished and so it is a modern environment demonstrating our passion to invest in our people. We have a 10-year lease, so we have the security of knowing we can focus on our objectives without worrying about a roof over our head.

Bank, Monument, Fenchurch Street, Tower Gateway, Tower Hill, Liverpool Street and London Bridge stations are also within a short walk away from the Eastcheap offices.

Our current telephone number will remain the same and the team will endeavour to deal with any Membership enquiries seamlessly throughout the move.

Please do bear with us on the day of the move because there will be a period of time when we will not have access to emails of phones. We shall ensure that a suitable out of office message is delivered on the day.

Thank you for your accommodation and support.

NACFB announces Lloyds Bank as 2018 title sponsor

The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers welcomes Lloyds Bank as 2018 sponsors, enhancing specialist support for commercial finance brokers across the UK

LONDON, February 2018: Lloyds Bank announced as the title sponsor of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) for the first time in its history.

The NACFB has served as a trade body for commercial brokers across the UK since 1992 and was first sponsored by Shawbrook in 2014.

The organisation has since continued to grow in stature and scope with nearly 140 lenders associated with it.

Andy Bishop, National Director of Business Development, SME Banking at Lloyds Bank, said: “We are proud to sponsor the NACFB in 2018 to help deliver more education, innovation and value across this highly competitive market.

“The NACFB’s commitment to transparency, not to mention their advocacy of the many benefits to customers of using a professional intermediary, is just one of the reasons why becoming title sponsor was an easy decision for us.

“At Lloyds Bank we pride ourselves on the relationships we have with NACFB brokers and recognise that the bank they recommend to clients is a reflection on them and their reputation. In this, our sixth year as NACFB Patrons, we look forward to enhancing our relationship with the Association and its members.”

Graham Toy, NACFB CEO, added: “On behalf of everyone within the NACFB, we are delighted to have Lloyds Bank on board as title sponsor for the first time.

“Our mutual commitment to being a source of expertise for intermediaries, as well as our focus on supporting the delivery of positive outcomes for their clients, is hardwired into the DNA of both organisations.

“This stands us in good stead for the inevitable challenges we will face in 2018 and beyond, and I would like to extend my thanks to the Lloyds Bank team for their ongoing support.”
