Taking a personal approach



Visited your bank lately? It’s not easy to find a human being to speak to, while getting to see a manager is nigh on impossible.

It’s no different for business customers and if you need a loan or finance for your business or want to buy an existing one, or even develop a property, where do you go?

The answer is quite simple, find an experienced broker! An independent, experienced local broker with a strong track record and an emphasis on personal service.

Conrad Robins at ASC Finance for Business has been helping clients in Cornwall and Devon find the right finance for over 30 years. As part of a national network of experienced brokers, ASC can provide lending solutions from local and national providers, high street banks and specialist lenders.

As a business owner himself, Conrad understands the issues that face independent businesses and entrepreneurs and can truly empathise with clients while presenting comprehensive and practical finance proposals to the lending market.

Building good relationships with other local professionals is also important.

Supported by a dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced team, Conrad is particularly knowledgeable in those business areas that are prominent in Cornwall, including hotels, holiday parks, restaurants and care homes. Other more unusual deals have included the purchase of fishing boats, a dog training centre, and a forest school.

More recently in addition to these sectors, Conrad has assisted numerous clients with funding to purchase and develop existing properties and build new ones. This can range from a single house conversion or new build to whole developments of many homes.

Many deals have also been done for Clients buying investment property including single residential properties and portfolio holders, commercial investments and holiday lets.

“Our approach to business is very simple in reality”, says Conrad. “With a small team of consultants, we are able to adopt a very personal, hands-on service to our clients and this combined with an excellent working knowledge of the area, and experience in the market, enables us to achieve the right outcomes for our clients.

“Whenever possible and practical, we look to meet clients in person in the first instance, in that way we can best understand the clients’ precise needs and build a good working relationship. Thereafter we endeavour to keep up regular communication throughout the process which doesn’t end at finding the right lender, we work collaboratively with our clients’ professional team, solicitors, accountants etc throughout the transaction until the deal is finally done”
