Who are EquipmentConnect

EquipmentConnect is a London based firm formed from professionals with experience in financial markets, credit modelling and asset financing.
The firm was established in 2017 to improve the asset finance environment offered to the SME business community.
So why do we need EquipmentConnect?
For too long, the small and medium-sized business, our economic backbone, have incurred excessive interest rates and latent fees through complex asset finance arrangements.
UK SMEs current annual asset financing requirement is approximately £40bln. Financing hard, recoverable assets for a growing business must be fast and affordable. Furthermore, redundant technology and legacy processes lead to prolonged turnaround times.
Our Team

The EquipmentConnect team are committed to delivering a swift and robust alternative source of asset financing to small and medium-sized businesses across Britain. This is achieved through our centralised platform which takes advantage of ongoing technological developments, with a single repository for all documentation. Whilst our background and skill-sets differ, we are passionate about fintech and it's potential to support the real economy.

We seek to offer a knowledge based solution to all our stakeholders and ultimately deliver a platform that is characterised by it’s integrity and trust. Our success will ultimately be born from the success of our partners.

Our Mission:

We aim to exploit technology to support SMEs with fast and affordable asset finance.

Our Network:

Development commenced in 2017 and when launched, the platform will connect SME companies seeking to finance new equipment with investors attracted to funding ring-fenced, business-critical assets.

Our Technology:

EquipmentConnect technology will offer an array of services throughout the funding process. Our mission as a firm goes above acting solely as an introductory agent between both parties. The platform features advanced data collection, analysis and storage functionality. All the additional features have been developed to enhance the borrower/lessee experience.
