Our affiliations allow Shire Leasing to provide a higher service and standard to British SMEs and ensure our services are regulated by relevant authorities.
British Business Bank
Shire Leasing PLC is financially supported by the government-owned British Business Bank. The British Business Bank has matched our current private funders and invested an additional £40 million into Shire Leasing.
In 2017, British Business Bank agreed a new £37.4m ENABLE Funding facility with Shire Leasing to boost asset finance for smaller businesses.
What does this mean for our customers?
We now have an own book value of over £115 million pounds to further inject into British SMEs. It has given Shire the ability to compete in new sectors, some of which most our competitors wouldn’t be able consider, giving us a real competitive advantage!
