Hilton-Baird retains industry-leading broker award

25/04/2023

We are delighted to have been named Invoice Finance Broker of the Year for the second successive year at the industry-leading Business Moneyfacts Awards.

Held in London last Thursday, 20th April, Managing Director Evette Orams and her team were presented with the award in front of over 800 professionals in the commercial finance industry.

It’s a magnificent achievement for the company, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2022 and has now won the award in four of the past six years.

As a commercial finance broker and invoice finance specialist, our team introduces businesses of all sizes to the most suitable funding facilities and lenders for their requirements, enabling our clients to fund growth, overcome cash flow challenges and achieve their potential.

Our team has been voted Invoice Finance Broker of the Year at the Business Moneyfacts Awards in four of the past six years

The Business Moneyfacts Awards is the country’s largest business finance awards ceremony and recognises outstanding achievements and exceptional client service amongst the leading brokers and lenders in the UK.

The panel of judges considered the company’s performance over the past 12 months, its track record at helping businesses to identify and secure suitable funding facilities, and the quality of client testimonials provided.

“I am incredibly proud of our team for all that they continue to achieve,” said Evette.

“With businesses facing increasing pressure on their cash flow, it’s gratifying to be in a role which enables us to support so many UK businesses, consulting with them and ultimately introducing them to suitable and supportive funding facilities. To be recognised for our work means so very much to every single member of our team. It is recognition of the passion they each invest in their roles and spurs us on to do an even greater job.”

Our role as a specialist finance broker is particularly important currently given the range of pressures facing businesses, from rising interest rates to high inflation, at a time they’re still overcoming the devastating impact of the pandemic.

However, having access to the most suitable funding can make an enormous difference.

Evette continued: “Flexibility is key to the majority of businesses. Where businesses trade on credit terms, it often makes sense for them to utilise their sales ledger as the main form of security in order to raise funding. Invoice finance enables this by releasing cash tied up in unpaid invoices, providing the funds to pay suppliers, fulfil orders or reinvest into the business, for example.

“Though we specialise in invoice finance, we’re a commercial finance broker and can therefore access a whole host of funding tools and products for our clients. It’s never been more true that one size doesn’t fit all.

“There are many businesses finding cash flow a challenge in this economic environment, but support is available. If your business is one of them, please feel free to reach out to our team. We’d love to assist and explore with you the options available to your business.”
