Simply Asset Finance grows national footprint with new Liverpool office
By Gloria Methri
Simply Asset Finance, the specialist business lending provider, is extending its national reach by opening an additional sales center in the business district of Liverpool. Headquartered in London, Simply Asset Finance already has existing hubs across Glasgow and Belfast.
The new offices, signifying the next step in Simply Asset Finance’s growth journey, will house the company’s Business Development Executive (BDE) team in the region, opening initially with a team of four. Simply Asset Finance is looking to quickly grow the office, with opportunities available for talent development in the sales area of the business.
The team will also seek to extend and develop its partnerships with commercial brokers, bringing the business’ lending solutions to fast-growing, and established small businesses in the North West and beyond.
The company recently achieved profits of £ 7.1 million in 2022, doubling year-on-year and adding £ 110 million to its loan book in 2022 alone. Since its inception Simply has championed small businesses’ growth and worked with them to lend over £ 1 billion to UK SMEs, funding over 31,000 assets for over 6,400 customers. The opening of the Liverpool office will increase the employee headcount to 139 Simply team members across the UK.
John Wiles, Managing Director, of Simply Asset Finance said, “We are incredibly excited to make this next step in Simply’s growth, and as one of the North West’s main economic hubs, Liverpool is the perfect place for us to be.
“The opening of the new office in Liverpool is a testament to our commitment to serving new and existing customers and brokers across the UK, utilising Simply Connect to enable businesses to access funds for growth. We’re also eager to open up opportunities for local budding talent to join us on the journey of building the next generation of asset finance.”
