Glasgow-based asset finance provider Carrick Asset Finance is celebrating its 5th anniversary, the company said in a press release.
Since its 1st October 2018 launch, the company “has grown into a business employing 18 staff, with a book of over £70m, and have provided nearly £200m of new finance to SMEs of all shapes and sizes across the UK,” the statement said.
“A massive thanks to all our colleagues, funders, brokers and customers for everything you’ve done to help get us to this notable milestone. We’d never have achieved what we have without your support and we’re very grateful for the faith you’ve placed in us, particularly during some of the challenging periods the world has gone through over the last few years,” the company said.
