More people like you come to us

Over the past 17 years we’ve provided over £1 billion in funding to thousands of businesses of all shapes and sizes, in all sorts of industry sectors.

This experience has allowed us to develop a market leading product range such as simple online cash loans, hire purchase agreements, specific industry financing and smart end-to-end supply chain solutions that give British businesses the kind of flexibility they need.

It helps being independent ourselves, because we understand that good funding gives businesses what they really want - more independence.

Ultimate Finance provides the best of both worlds - the understanding, speed and flexibility of an independent funder with the reassurance of a successful company that’s backed by an even bigger one.

Backing you can rely on

Since September 2015, Ultimate Finance has enjoyed the full backing of the Tavistock Group, an international private investment organisation founded by Joe Lewis more than 35 years ago. Seeking investment opportunities around the world, Tavistock strives for excellence in everything they do.

They value long-term relationships, which benefit from their considerable capital, experience and broad base of resources. This financial strength and commitment means we will always be here when you need us most.

Supporting British businesses

We work in close partnership with the British Business Bank - a government-backed initiative that aims to increase the supply of funding to small businesses and aid their understanding of the options available to them beyond just their high street bank.

They don't lend direct to businesses, but via selected funding partners like Ultimate Finance. Their partnership with independent providers like ourselves is recognition of the additional support and flexible financing options that small to medium high-growth businesses require to start up, scale up and stay ahead.
