Just 33 days left

By Norman Chambers, managing director at the NACFB

We have listened to your feedback from last month’s Broker Days in London, Manchester and Birmingham and we are keen to communicate more clearly all the things we are doing on your behalf to ‘make your boat go faster’. As such, I have again outlined below some of the key items that the team is working on and will be heading into in the coming weeks.

Only 33 days remain until the Commercial Finance Expo 2018
Doesn’t time fly? Summer is nearly upon us and there are now only 33 days until this year’s NACFB Commercial Finance Expo . It takes 30 seconds to register for the free event – the largest of its kind on the commercial finance calendar. Returning for the ninth year to Birmingham’s NEC, its strategic location is optimised to enable as many brokers as possible from across the UK to engage with the 130+ exhibiting lenders and funders.
