Henry Howard goes from strength to strength within a dynamic market. A recent £25m investment from specialist private equity investor, Cabot Square Capital, has allowed us to expand and further develop our offering. Today we are a 'one-stop shop', encompassing all the finance requirements any SME could need.
Henry Howard Finance (HHF) is one of the UK’s leading business finance providers for the SME marketplace, and the largest independent finance house in Wales.
For more than two decades, HHF have been providing businesses from all sectors and industries with access to a range of financial solutions; including asset finance, hire purchase, invoice discounting and invoice factoring.
In the last few years alone, HHF has provided financial support to over 20,000 different UK businesses across a variety of sectors.
In June 2014, HHF received a £25 million investment from Cabot Square Capital, a private equity investor. This investment supported the development of four business divisions dedicated to providing access to finance, equipment and services, namely; Henry Howard Cashflow Finance, Henry Howard Retail Finance, Henry Howard Vendor Finance and Henry Howard Asset Finance.
Our growth was further supported in 2016, with the approval of a £51m asset finance facility with the British Business Bank. The ‘Enable Funding’ programme is 50% guaranteed by the European Investment Fund, and further extends our funding facilities to an even larger portfolio of UK businesses.
As an independent finance house with a substantial own book facility and dedicated underwriting team, HHF eliminate certain restrictions faced by other finance providers, allowing the business to make timely and reasonable decisions ahead of many high street lenders.
At HHF, the approach is personal. The management team bring a “can do” attitude to business finance, combining a broker-like mentality with funder capabilities. As a well-established independent lender with a range of services, expansion is set to continue throughout 2017.
This unique approach protects our reputation as the independent finance provider of choice for the UK SME market.
