Collectively we have almost 65 years of working experience in London, the epicentre of financial services innovation. While our experience and skill sets contrast, our personalities very much compliment and we are united by our entrepreneurial zest and passion for improving SME finance.  

The culture of equipmentconnect is defined by its no-nonsense, ethical and progressive approach. We recognise that as a business we must generate a return but we aren't consumed by profit hunting. Rather, we seek to be the best solution for all our stakeholders and ultimately offer SME borrowers and investors a platform of professional service, integrity and trust. Our success will be the success of our partners.
