Our customer’s CEO comments
“Despite the size and success of our business, we have struggled to work with our long-term bankers. Therefore, we were recommended to Number Eight Business Finance who have been superb in helping us to raise the funding needed. We have now worked with Number Eight for a number of years. The advice and support provided has been second- to-none.”
In response, David Grosse, Managing Director of Number Eight Business Finance,
“I am seeing a trendof well-established and sophisticated businesses that no longer have any confidence in their highstreet bank relationship. This case is a classic example. Following the initial introduction, we met with the directors at their premises and spent time understanding the business. Thereafter, we have been well positioned to provide regular advice and funding when required.”
Number Eight Business Finance is a specialist advisory-led intermediary organisation that is focused onproviding advice to businesses that are either considering finance or believe that their exiting facilitiesare not suitable or competitive. We believe that the majority of business owners need help following the demise of the high street banks and this has been proven in this case and many other case studies.
