The accolades look set to continue into 2011 and 2012 as Skipton Business Finance finds itself nominated for a host of awards. But why do we continue to win prestigious awards year after year?
Skipton Business Finance is a leading, proactive financier with offices in Skipton, Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham. The company’s award-winning service spans factoring and invoice discounting, boasts independent status and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Skipton Building Society, a mutual that has been serving its members for over 150 years.
Skipton Business Finance has been operating successfully for over 10 years and has strength of over 50 personnel and an executive board of highly regarded industry experts.
With no expensive shareholder dividends to pay, the ethos of Skipton Business Finance is very much focussed on understanding their clients’ businesses and assisting in creating wealth and jobs in the regions, rather than purely for profit. This naturally leads to a partnership approach with their clients and a specifically-designed internal structure whereby the client can enjoy close and personable relationships with highly trained and experienced staff as well as systems and processes designed to better the experience of its interaction with the financier.
Because of this unique ethos, Skipton Business Finance has, in 2010 alone, won the accolade of “Invoice Factoring & Invoice Discounting Provider of the Year” and “Most Supportive Asset-Based Lender of the Year” on top of various personnel awards and is proud to receive this award from InterContinental Finance Magazine.
