MacManus Asset Finance Celebrates National Award Win

Honouring Excellence in the Financial Sector

MacManus Asset Finance Ltd, a leading asset finance brokerage based in Caerphilly, proudly announces its recognition as the Asset Finance Broker of the Year at the prestigious Business Moneyfacts Awards in London. The ceremony, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, took place on 18th April at the Evolution Centre in Battersea, drawing over 700 professionals from top financial institutions across the UK.

A Remarkable Achievement

Founded in 2005 by Chris and Rhian MacManus, MacManus Asset Finance operates from Caerphilly Business Park. Securing this top award was a significant milestone, especially given the fierce competition from some of the largest firms in the asset finance sector. Co-founder Chris MacManus expressed his pride and surprise at the win:

“These are arguably the highest profile awards in UK business financing and we were having a fantastic evening. When I heard Claudia say ‘The winner is MacManus Asset Finance Ltd’ I was stunned. It was a real underdog moment!”

Customer Testimonials: The Key to Success

Customer testimonials played a crucial role in the firm’s success at the awards. Chris highlighted the importance of customer satisfaction in their business model:

“What matters to a business customer is the service they receive, not how big the brokerage is. We have always aimed to provide a premium service to our clients, becoming an Outsourced Business Finance Partner.”

He added:

“We were blessed that when we reached out to our business customers and told them we’d made the final they responded overwhelmingly, providing dozens of testimonials about the service they had received from us over the years. In the end, it would seem that the judges felt we had earned the accolade of Asset Finance Broker of the Year, and we couldn’t be more delighted,” Chris added.

Committed to Serving the UK Businesses

MacManus Asset Finance serves a diverse range of businesses across Wales and the rest of the UK. They offer tailored financing solutions for investments in vehicles, plant, and machinery, as well as providing cashflow finance and business loans. Reflecting on the broader impact of their recognition, Chris remarked:

“There are some incredible business finance brokerages in South Wales with knowledge and skill and a willingness to support local businesses with access to the essential business financing that they need to expand and grow.”

Chris concluded:

“I think there’s an assumption that bigger firms in England must be better. Well, I hope that our winning this award may go some way to change that perception.”

Industry Praise and Resilience

Lee Tillcock, Editor of Business Moneyfacts, commented on the industry’s performance over the past year:

“The past year has seen the business finance sector rise to numerous challenges placed upon it by economic uncertainty. While interest rate and working capital funding line concerns remained, working tirelessly to boost business opportunities, it was brokers and providers that offered the expertise and knowledge that helped many businesses thrive and survive. The finalists and eventual winners at this year’s awards should be rightly proud of their achievements. They have offered a range of products and services that have best supported the sector, at a time when its success and growth remain vital to the recovery of the wider economy.”
