Commercial Finance

Supporting the growth and success of businesses, particularly SMEs, is essential to the future prosperity of the UK

The banking and finance industry has a crucial role to play in supplying services to firms and providing access to finance so they can achieve their ambitions and grow to their full potential. SMEs across the UK need confidence that their provider will treat them fairly and consistently. 

Our Commercial Finance team represents members that provide services and finance for business, ensuring that UK firms get the support they need to thrive. 

We represent our members by developing policy positions and using our expertise to engage with key stakeholders in the UK, Europe and globally on key industry issues. We deliver collaborative change and facilitate the implementation of initiatives to enhance access to finance, service and competition. 

We provide extensive knowledge and expertise to members, acting as a centre of excellence including through extensive data, research and thought leadership. Involvement in committees in areas such as export and trade finance supports members’ insight into new ideas and best practice, enabling them to make more informed decisions.
