Wesleyan Bank named Top Professions Funder at Leasing World Awards 2020

Specialist commercial finance provider Wesleyan Bank has been crowned 'Top Professions Funder' at Leasing World's annual Gold Awards which was held as a virtual event this year.

It saw off competition from both traditional high street lenders and challenger banks to win the award due to its commitment to supporting its professions customers during a challenging trading period and ongoing digital innovation.

Wesleyan Bank also came runner-up in the 'Top Block Funder' category for its wholesale finance facility which was launched earlier this year.

Now in their 12th year, the Leasing World Awards are one of the finance industry's most respected awards schemes.

The event recognises standout providers and individuals across 17 major categories, with judges looking for clearly demonstrated excellence in areas such as business growth, dynamism and good management.

Wesleyan Bank provides tailored finance solutions to professionals in the general practice, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, optical, legal and accountancy sectors, alongside its SME channel business.

Products include short-term cash flow solutions, asset lending to support investment in technology and specialist equipment and long-term loans, such as business acquisitions and commercial mortgages. The company is also the long term, strategic finance partner of the Law Society of England and Wales.

In the last 12 months, Wesleyan Bank has invested significantly to enhance its digital services. In partnership with leading dental and veterinary practice finance brands it has developed new online portals to enable practices to process patient finance applications in a simple and quick way.

Simon Welling, Director of Sales and Marketing at Wesleyan Bank, comments, "We are pleased to win this prestigious industry award following a successful year where we have achieved growth in several core professions markets.

"Despite the challenges presented by coronavirus for both us and our customers, we have remained open for business throughout the pandemic and proactively offered support to those that have needed it."

He continues, "We are also proud to have retained an above benchmark score for positive customer experience and will continue to invest in the customer journey going forward. I would like to thank all of our staff and customers for their part in helping the Bank get this far."
