AFS Agricultural Finance

Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd (AFS) is continuously striving to understand our customers’ needs in order to provide funding solutions that help them to achieve their business aspirations. With agriculture being a key sector to contribute to the recovery of the UK economy, AFS have formed AFS Agricultural Finance which will be responsible for getting AFS closer to the farming community so that we can support every aspect of agriculture asset funding. Our aim is to provide access to finance across the whole of the agriculture sector by:

1) Forging new direct relationships with a wide range of rural businesses.

2) Working with brokers, dealers and traders to assist them in achieving and maintaining compliancy with the new FCA regulations through access to training, systems, processes and procedures.

3) To develop a national network of FCA compliant brokers with access to over 50 funders.

4) Working with our funders to promote the agriculture sector and to ensure that the terms and policies that they have in place are reflective of the agriculture industry.

5) Providing access to information and education with regards to finance industry changes and agricultural trends.

As well as providing finance to rural businesses AFS are able to provide FCA compliance solutions for credit brokers, machinery dealers and traders operating in the agricultural finance market.

As one of only a few brokerages granted ‘Principal Status’ by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), AFS is able to guide credit brokers, machinery dealers and traders through the complex maze of financial compliance introduced since the FCA took over these responsibilities from the Office of Fair Trading. We are able to not only safeguard the future of your business but provide you with the ability to focus on providing your customers with the very best financial solutions.

AFS can offer a wide range of packages to any business involved in the agriculture industry from ensuring that you meet the guidelines that the FCA have introduced right through to providing you with access to funds through over 50 different finance providers.
