Reach Commercial Finance has been shortlisted for four categories in the prestigious Commercial Broker Awards 2021.

A panel of 11 industry experts, all of whom were chosen for their expertise and understanding of the sector, selected the UK’s leading players for the prestigious accolades, which are run by the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB).

Reach Commercial Finance ‐ the Manchester‐headquartered independent brokerage division of Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group ‐ was shortlisted for all four award categories it entered, including Cashflow Broker of the Year, CBILS Broker of the Year and Factoring, Invoice Discounting Broker of the Year and Deal of the Year.

Being named as such a key contender provides further reason for Reach to celebrate, following the most unprecedented of times. Over the last 12 months alone ‐ a year that saw many businesses impacted by the pandemic, lockdowns and commercial challenges – the Reach team has undertaken some 900 lender discussions and introduced over £40million of new funding to its portfolio, despite all of the Government support measures and liquidity in the market.

Reach Commercial Finance Director Gary Cain said: “We’re obviously delighted to have been shortlisted for all four categories that we entered. It’s a really great position that builds on last year’s success, when we were shortlisted for three and we went on to take the top spot in the Factor & Invoice Discounter Broker of the Year category. 

“Whatever happens at the awards event, this is such a great reward and recognition for the team here who, over the last 12 months, have put together some outstanding deals in the most challenging times. The difference they’ve made to the businesses involved has been more welcomed and important than ever before.” 

NACFB has a trade membership of over 1600 commercial finance brokers across the UK and champions the highest levels of professionalism, industry and regulatory standards. 

Winners of the Commercial Broker Awards 2021 will be announced during an awards ceremony, at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, in September.
