Finance broker surpasses £1bn mark in lending
Lincolnshire’s Victor Finance has surpassed the milestone of £1bn in lending.
Established in 1985 by John Williams, Victor Finance began as a family-owned brokerage company, initially focused on assisting local businesses, particularly those in the road and transport sector.
Based in Brigg, Victor Finance now operates nationwide, serving various industries across the UK.
Stuart Williams, director at Victor Finance said: “It’s hard to compute breaking through £1bn in funding. It’s such a large number and genuinely a great achievement for a small business like ours to have accomplished.
“We’ve never taken the time to quantify our lending in this way, the successes we’ve experienced as a team have always just been a result of ‘doing what we do’. They’re a result of the work we live and breathe every day, based on the principles the company was founded on. To reach this milestone, for us, means that the team has been able to help thousands of customers achieve their goals since 1985. What a fantastic thing to be able to celebrate.”
Lauren McQuilken, business development manager at Asset Finance, United Trust Bank added: “Victor Finance is a long-standing and key introducer of asset finance to United Trust Bank. Victor Finance is a pleasure to work with; they are consistently professional and ensure their customers are always at the forefront of what they do – we are thrilled to see them mark the £1bn lending threshold.
“The Victor Finance team is leading the charge within the industry in supporting SMEs, not only in their local area but UK-wide. United Trust Bank has been fortunate enough to witness this business’s growth and continued success throughout the years. With a team of aspiring individuals and leaders, we are nothing but excited about what the future holds for Victor Finance.”
