The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) has announced the return of Lloyds Bank as the trade body’s 2020 headline sponsor.
Building upon their support over the last two years, the sponsorship will see Lloyds Bank partner with the NACFB to further promote the vital role the broker market plays for UK SMEs.
This year’s headline sponsorship will see Lloyds Bank take prominent position at all flagship and regional events as well as online and in the Commercial Broker magazine.
Andy Bishop, National Director of Business Development SME Banking at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “We are proud to once again be headline sponsor for the NACFB in 2020 and our aim is to help deliver more education, innovation and value across this highly competitive market.
“The NACFB’s commitment to transparency – coupled with their advocacy of the many benefits to customers of using a professional intermediary – are just a few of the many reasons why returning as headline sponsor for the third time was an easy decision for us.
“At Lloyds Bank, we pride ourselves on the relationships we have with NACFB brokers 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, spoke of Lloyds Banks returning sponsorship: “I speak on behalf of everyone at the NACFB when I say we couldn’t be happier to have Lloyds return as headline sponsor for the third time.
“Their support will stand us in good stead for the inevitable challenges we will face in 2020 and beyond, and I would like to extend our gratitude to Andy and the Lloyds team for their ongoing support – both to the NACFB and the broker market.”
“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,” Graham added.
