Aldermore wins leasing industry Oscar for second year running
Aldermore, the British challenger bank, was voted 'Independent Lessor of the Year' for the second year running at the annual leasing industry awards held in London on 3rd October.
The award recognises the importance of leasing companies that are not owned by the major banks and the role they play in developing new initiatives and innovating in this important market.
The award was accepted on behalf of Aldermore by George Ashworth, Managing Director of Asset Finance, who said: "I am delighted that Aldermore has won this prestigeous award for the second year in succession. Not only has Aldermore won the 'Independent Lessor of the Year' category, but we were also shortlisted for the 'Lessor of the Year' and 'SME Champion of the year' categories.
"This award is a great accolade and tribute to all the hard work, energy and passion that every member of staff has brought to the business and I would like to congratulate them all on this fantastic achievment."
Aldermore Asset Finance provides a range of finance facilities designed to enable small and medium sized businesses to acquire a wide range of assets, from plant and machinery to computers and cars.
