The financial services sector is a major part of the UK economy and a significant employer. It supports business success in this country and abroad with innovative products and services, and oils the wheels of consumer finance, from direct debits to credit cards.
The UK’s position as a leading provider of financial services reflects the high standards of financial education we offer, and the number of talented individuals developing cutting-edge fintech products.
Even established financial services companies cannot relax their efforts, however, given the pace at which technology is advancing, plus the fact that new start-ups are constantly entering the market.
UK Business Finance can help your financial services business to grow and develop with flexible commercial finance products that help you adapt to changing needs and bring your strategic plans to fruition.
Data breaches are a significant concern in the sector given the sensitive financial and personal information typically held. A cyber attack or data leak could damage a business's reputation in the long term and result in a hefty fine.
The government’s extensive package of regulatory reforms for the financial services industry, known as the ‘Edinburgh Reforms,’ will lead to changes to a broad range of regulations in the coming months and years.
A crowded market
Operating successfully in this crowded marketplace requires a clear brand identity and agility to change direction when necessary. The innovative environment of financial services means entrants with a new offering could quickly take a market share from older firms.
We can help you find the funding you need to grow your business and compete effectively in this burgeoning sector. You could use the funding to recruit new talent, for example, invest in advancing technology, or to better manage cash flow.
Revolving credit is a form of working capital finance that gives you access to additional cash when your business needs it. It is similar to a bank overdraft as you have a credit limit and can use the credit facility as and when required.
Hire purchase facilitates the buying of expensive assets without having to make a capital outlay. Once a deposit has been made you repay the lender via a fixed payment schedule and can become the owner of the asset after a small final payment has been made.
If your business has money tied up in an existing asset that is wholly owned, asset refinancing can unlock that working capital whilst you retain use. You sell it to a financier under a sale and leaseback arrangement and become the owner again once it has been repaid.

What are the finance options for a growing or expanding business?
With such a wide range of finance options available for growing and expanding businesses, it’s difficult to know which one is the most suitable. This stage of business is crucial, however, and it’s important to make the right funding choices.
How to finance a business
Business financing and funding options have expanded greatly in recent years and you’re no longer restricted to loans from the major banks. The alternative finance market offers funding solutions that you may not have considered before, and that are typically quick to obtain.
How to get a business loan
The right type of loan can kick-start your business or provide the financial support that enables growth. Not all business loans are made equal, however, and it’s important to know your options and how to source the best deals.
What is a debenture?
A debenture is a legal document used to define the terms of a secured business loan for a limited company or limited liability partnership. It includes the full amount of the loan, the interest rate and term, and the specifics of the lender’s rights to the asset mentioned.
