Aldermore Bank Plc enters asset finance market

In the last  month or so a new asset funder has entered the broker market providing a much needed alternative to ING  Lease. Aldermore Bank have entered the  asset finance market as a direct competitor or alternative to ING.

Not that there is anything wrong with ING Lease. Far from it. Over the last 10 years they have been without a doubt the most consistent and effeficient finance provider  in the leasing and asset finance market. However during the last eighteen months  they have been the only serious  funder. Prior to the credit crunch there were at least 4 finance companies that we could have obtained competitive finance and hire purchase facilities. They include Lombard, Barclays, Yorkshire Bank and ING Bank. All were doing extremely competitive deals in order to win your business. However as the credit crunch took hold they all withdrew their leasing facilities and were only doing deals for their very best customers. As such ING has been bursting at the seams and once a customer was at he maximum level with INGthere has been very few alternatives. The only alternative were very expensive second or third tier lenders that without a doubt would have all required guarantees irrelevant as to the quality of the covenant or asset based lenders that are only able to lend against the trade value of the kit.

Therefore having a new prime funder in the market is good news for everyone including ING. Whilst we are not expecting Aldermore to replace ING they will certainly mop up the stronger credits where ING are full. I think it will take some time before they take on the marginal deals but none the less still good news!
