Asset Finance Blog | January 2018 – The year ahead

While we recognise that this has been a challenging time due to the uncertain economic and political environment, we believe the year ahead could be increasingly positive for brokers.

According to the latest figures from the Finance and Leasing Association, the asset finance sector is on course to report a record level of new business in 2017, with brokers playing a vital role in driving this growth.

This comes as no surprise to us here in Hampshire Trust Bank’s Asset Finance team, we are seeing this growth ourselves and our broker partners are set to make the most of the range of opportunities open to them in the year ahead.

Intermediaries will continue to play an increasingly important role in providing customers with access to finance in the next 12 months and beyond, supporting their customers by helping them to consider how they plan to finance expansion in the near and long term to ensure they retain a competitive edge.

At Hampshire Trust Bank, we are committed to helping brokers grow their business and providing support wherever we possibly can.

We understand that time is money and that brokers need to be able to provide clients with swift decisions. This is one of the reasons why we have launched a new bespoke suite of documentation, designed to make working with us simpler and more straightforward.

This is the latest in a pipeline of innovations which has included introducing a brand new senior team, making key strategic hires to help support our brokers on the ground, launching a web portal and app and much more.

We have plenty more improvements and enhancements planned throughout the year ahead. If you are interested in finding out more or have suggestions on how we could work better together then please do not hesitate to contact us, we are always interested in hearing from you.
