Butlers, the treasury management consultancy and part of financial brokerage ICAP, has partnered with leasing advisors UniLink in a recently signed deal.

The partnership will see the organisations working together but as separate entities.

“Yes, we will remain independent,” said Karl Adams, director at Butlers.

“Basically, the tie-in means that if our budgetary appraisal for a client comes down on the side of a leasing option we have access to a broader spectrum of financial solutions through our relationship with UniLink,” he added.

For Ian Blower, director at UniLink, the arrangement is a “good fit” and continues the already close working relationship between the two.

“Butlers’ core treasury management business lies in the public sector, while UniLink has a dedicated arm catering for local authorities’ asset finance requirements.”

Blower also points to legislation such as the Prudential Code whereby councils have to show explicit regard when procuring for, among others, value for money and stewardship of assets.

“Essentially, councils like to deal with one company, and that’s what the partnership provides – a full service agency.”
