Funding Solutions was founded in the UK in 2006, inspired by the desire to help business find precious funding that is not so easy to arrange.

We were of the opinion that the business advice available in the market was either sales focused or inadequate. This meant that people offering advice had an objective only to sell a particular product from a particular company, and this advice often did not fully understand the business of it’s new customer, and the customer did not understand the business finance market and what was actually available.

From our very inception we aimed to provide fully impartial advice and we have no ties to any particular lender and no preference for what type of finance product a business uses. We simply offer advice about what options are available to business, and then work between the lender and our clients, to help smooth the process and find a workable solution.

Our advice includes what options are available, how they might assist your business, what they will cost and any operations requirements or special conditions that might exist. We aim to facilitate your informed decision, and we fully understand that one of your choices is to do nothing. On that basis there is no ‘hard sell’ approach. We believe that only you as the business owner or director can decide what is best for your business.

We have many years of experience in the business finance industry but importantly we also have experience within businesses just like yours. We can understand your concerns and frustrations, and we take a very hands on approach.
