Ascendis, a firm of chartered accountants in Manchester, have announced the opening of their new funding solution department and the appointment of Glyn Jones as Funding Director.
In his early career, Glyn Jones worked at HSBC in the Investment Transactions team and also worked in sales for a period of time until 2011, when he moved into finance.
Since then, Glyn has been helping SMEs with their cash flow requirements and his recent experience includes working with one of the large alternative finance providers, focusing on invoice finance facilities.
Glyn shared his thoughts with us on his move to Ascendis:
“There are hundreds of lenders in the current market who are willing to fund UK SMEs, so as a business owner, the real problem you have is knowing which one to choose.
Ascendis work on the basis that they are an integral part of your business and they get involved way beyond just the figures. Regardless of the age or size of the business, the advice provided to clients from day one is always driven towards helping the client achieve their business and personal goals.”
Ascendis will now be able to assist its clients with funding solutions such as:
- Invoice Finance
- Construction Finance
- Trade Finance
- Business Loans
- Asset Finance
- Bridging Finance
- Funding for VAT/Corporation tax/R&D claims
