What our brokers say

I’d like to thank the Cambridge & Counties Bank team for their assistance and ongoing support in providing Hire Purchase facilities to my customer. This has allowed them to finance new and replacement vehicles which have been an important contribution to the ongoing success of the business.

Pete Watson, Asset Finance Solutions Ltd

I have a fantastic working relationship with Cambridge & Counties and they always go above and beyond to help me and my clients. It is incredibly important that I can trust a funder to serve my clients well and this is never in doubt with Cambridge & Counties, primarily due to their personal approach and desire to get deals done quickly. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them on many more transactions to come.

Ben Lavin, Empire Finance Ltd

Cambridge & Counties Bank have provided my client with a bespoke revolving credit service that no other lender has been able to match. The bank think outside the box and are happy to structure a deal that makes commercial sense. I look forward to sending more deals through in future. Happy client means happy broker!
