Rural Finance joins NACFB as broker Member


Rural Finance has recently become a broker Member of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) – the UK’s largest independent trade body for commercial finance intermediaries.

This significant milestone means that Rural Finance, one of the largest and long-established finance broker networks in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, will now operate under the NACFB banner.

Andrew Glover, director of Rural Finance, expressed his enthusiasm for the membership: “We recognised the immense value in being part of a community of forward-thinking commercial finance brokers. The NACFB provides invaluable services that enhance our ability to demonstrate business integrity and regulatory adherence to our stakeholders, including lenders and clients. The NACFB’s Assurance accreditation empowers us to reinforce our commitment to excellence.”

Norman Chambers, managing director of NACFB, welcomed Rural Finance to the trade body: “We are delighted to welcome Andrew, Mike, and their team to our growing trade Association. Asset finance is a sector that has seen considerable growth in recent years, with SMEs recognising the potential for growth through strategic funding deployment. We are proud to support Rural Finance and hope our recognition encourages the UK’s agricultural business community to engage with them to unlock their very own growth potential.”

Since 2004, Rural Finance has been securing funding to sustain and develop agricultural businesses across the UK. The firm offers a straightforward approach to finance through their network of experienced brokers who possess deep knowledge and understanding of the agricultural sector.
