Cynergy Business Finance provides £150m of funding facilities in first year


Cynergy Business Finance (CBF), the asset-based lending (ABL) arm of Cynergy Bank, has surpassed £150m in funding for UK small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) since its launch in September 2021.

Providing individual facilities between £200k – £20m, CBF funds against businesses’ receivables as well as plant and machinery, inventory, and property. 

Since launching, CBF has supported over 100 businesses, providing versatile ABL funding facilities to help them maximise their potential. Operating across a range of different sectors, CBF is on its way to being the first-choice funding partner for aspiring SMEs.

CBF is part of the £3bn+ human-digital bank – Cynergy Bank.  The team is spearheaded by Dave Golding, Ted Winterton, Dan Burton and Paul Fraser who operate across the UK, with key operational offices in Manchester and London.  The team has quickly established itself as one of the most proactive and competitive ABL funders in the UK.

Notable clients include one of Scotland’s earliest kilt makers, Macnaughton Holdings Limited. Providing the 7th generation textile company with an Asset-Based Lending package, incorporating receivables, inventory and property, was crucial in supporting their growth plans, notably in expanding their global exports.

Dave Golding, Managing Director at CBF, said: “The team has achieved extraordinary success over the last 12 months, delivering valuable lines of funding to exciting and fast-growing businesses in the UK.  From young, family-owned

businesses to more mature PE-backed corporates, we have been able to create value and facilitate growth following a difficult couple of years for UK SMEs.

“With the multitude of macro-economic and political challenges affecting businesses right now, there are lots of good businesses with great potential that are unable to access the best funding.  We are confident ABL can support many of them, and we are dedicated to making it easier for our clients and wider network to understand its value.  There are huge opportunities for businesses that embrace ABL, and we are excited to support them.”
