Lloyds Bank announced as 2019 NACFB headline sponsor

Association welcomes Lloyds Bank as returning headline sponsor, enhancing specialist support for commercial finance brokers across the UK


The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) today announces the return of Lloyds Bank as the trade body’s 2019 headline sponsor.

Building upon their support in 2018, the sponsorship will see Lloyds Bank partner with the NACFB to further promote the vital role the broker market plays for UK SMEs.

Andy Bishop, National Director of Business Development SME Banking at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “We are proud to sponsor the NACFB in 2019 to help deliver more education, innovation and value across this highly competitive market.

The NACFB’s commitment to transparency, not to mention their advocacy of the many benefits to customers of using a professional intermediary, is just one of many reasons why returning as headline sponsor was an easy decision for us.

At Lloyds Bank we pride ourselves on the relationships we have with NACFB Members and recognise that the bank they recommend to their clients is a reflection on them and their company’s reputation. As founding NACFB Patrons, we look forward to further enhancing our relationship with the Association and its Members.”

Graham Toy, NACFB CEO, added: “On behalf of everyone within the NACFB, we are delighted to have Lloyds Bank return as headline sponsor for the second time in their history.”

Graham continued: “Our mutual commitment to championing intermediaries, as well as our focus on supporting the delivery of positive outcomes for their clients, is hardwired into the DNA of both organisations.”

This stands us in good stead for the inevitable challenges we will face in 2019 and beyond, and I would like to extend my thanks to the Lloyds team for their ongoing support both to us and the broker market.
