Case studies

Haydock Finance receives block discounting facility from Downing

In January 2021, we announced a new block discounting partnership with asset finance specialist, Haydock Finance. 

The new block discounting facility enables Haydock to broaden their reach to a wide range of UK SMEs, providing hire-purchase, leasing and refinance for business assets to firms wanting to invest and grow. Throughout the pandemic, Haydock has maintained its commitment to providing asset finance across all sectors which has led to a large surge in applications. This additional funding will help Haydock to increase lending in line with this demand and pursue their ambitious growth strategy.
