LONDON: Lloyds Bank announced as the title sponsor of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) for the first time in its history.
The NACFB has served as a trade body for commercial brokers across the UK since 1992 and was first sponsored by Shawbrook in 2014.
The organisation has since continued to grow in stature and scope with nearly 140 lenders associated with it.
Andy Bishop, National Director of Business Development, SME Banking at Lloyds Bank, said: “We are proud to sponsor the NACFB in 2018 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 the reasons why becoming title sponsor 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 clients is a reflection on them and their reputation. In this, our sixth year as NACFB Patrons, we look forward to 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 on board as title sponsor for the first time.
“Our mutual commitment to being a source of expertise for 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 2018 and beyond, and I would like to extend my thanks to the Lloyds Bank team for their ongoing support.”
