About Us

We’re not a bank. We’re your competitive advantage.

Here’s the first thing we know. Your business doesn’t need any kind of ‘one size fits all’ service, because your business isn't like every other one out there.

Here’s the second thing we know. No-one likes dealing with banks. The endless form-filling, the robotic responses, and the waiting… and waiting… 

Here’s the third thing we know. You didn’t go into work this morning to spend so much time sweating over spreadsheets, wondering how you can make ends meet, hit those goals, or action those plans. 

If growing or developing your business is on your agenda for 2016, then sourcing finance is inevitable - and sourcing the best finance is essential. 

We’re Satellite Finance, the financial broker with all the years of experience you could ever need. We deliberately keep our team small to keep our service personal. That’s why our customers come back again and again. And again. We’ll never treat you like a number, because that would drive you up the wall and you deserve better. If you call us, you speak to a human (we can assure you we are all human).

We know asset finance, loans, leasing, hire purchase, factoring, and commercial mortgages inside out. We work with businesses of all sizes across all sectors, so our market knowledge is truly top-notch. Our relationships with over 40 lenders in the UK have allowed us to lend more than £50 million to over 3,500 customers in 7 years. 

We knew how to source the right finance for them, and we know how to source the right finance for you.

How It Works

1You take the eligibility test - all you need is a couple of minutes. Our acceptance rate is exceptionally high, so even if the bank said no, we could still say yes.

2If you're eligible, we'll then handle all the paperwork and legwork for you. We'll speak to all the appropriate lenders to find the very best deals on the market for you.

3We explain all of the details and terms to you, and you choose your deal.

4The money you need can be in your account within 24 hours (depending on the type of finance you've opted for) ready to be invested into your business.

5Your cash flow gives you a big thumbs up and you can stop being a slave to the spreadsheet and chasing debts.

6The more you grow, the more we can help. A massive 40% of our customers are repeat customers.
