On receiving the award Justin said "I was delighted to win this award from Kingsley Asset Finance. 2023 proved to be another very good year for our growing team of Appointed Representatives. Despite uncertainty in the money markets SMEs still had the confidence to invest in new assets for their businesses. I have got to know & like Jonathan Smith and his team over the years; we receive very good feedback from our AR's who deal with them on a regular basis . They particularly like the commercial approach to underwriting, the excellent level of service they receive and consider them a great alternative source of funding for their clients”.

Justin also came down to our new office to collect the award and had a very tense game of Connect 4 with Jonathan... who has finally been beaten at a game!

Their knowledge and experience in the professional loan market is excellent and they are always looking at ways to improve their offering to make it easier for both us and our clients.
V4B’s plans for 2024 see an increase in our sales team with greater opportunities to convert more professional loan business with Kingsley and our other funders. Both I and the team were truly delighted to receive this award and see it as recognition for both the level and quality of business we send."


Top Active New Broker

Finance For Farms - part of Shire Leasing PLC have won this years Top Active New Broker!


John Flounders and his team at Finance for Farms are the winners this year of the Top Active New Broker Award.

John set up Finance for Farms over 10 years ago after persuading the board at Shire that there was a gap in the agricultural market to fund cattle; mainly dairy herds. Finance for Farms is now a successful and well-known funder and broker, respected for their knowledge and expertise in the farming community at large.

John said “As our dairy farmers continued to replace or increase their herds, we needed another funder onboard who was prepared to consider funding livestock for our farmers.
Kingsley impressed us with their ‘can do attitude’ and a willingness to understand how we structured & underwrote our own book deals.
We have now transacted numerous deals with Kingsley and my team are delighted with the ease in which proposals go through the process system to payout.
We are pleased to have received this award and look forward to building on our working relationship moving forward this year!”


Congratulations again to all our winners!
