We help businesses go further
We bring together businesses looking to fund growth, with lenders that have the vision to help them succeed. We create connections which give long-term value.
Supporting business owners
We believe in entrepreneurs who dream big and want to do more. We’re inspired by brave business men and women whose ambition pushes them to go further.
We see finance as a powerful tool to unlock a small business’s full potential, so we fuel business growth by giving entrepreneurs access to the very best finance the market has to offer.
Our values define us. They define how we treat our customers and how we do business. Our values are:
We believe in doing what you say you’re going to do. Our culture is founded on trust, and this comes from honesty, openness and acting with integrity. We’re committed to acting transparently and treating customers fairly.
Life’s complicated. That’s why we work really hard at simplifying complexity to help make our clients’ lives easier. We aim to communicate without jargon; we build simple processes; and we help clients achieve their goals with minimal fuss.
It’s within our DNA to innovate. Much of the commercial finance world is stuck in the last century, so we launched BIZL to bring a breath of fresh air on the market. We’re always looking for better ways to do things.
