1. What can asset finance be used for?

Asset finance covers a wide range of assets – for individuals it could be the purchase of a car, motorbike or boat, or for a business, asset finance could be used to cover the purchase of IT hardware, machinery, equipment or business vehicles.

Cash is a valuable asset in its own right. If you’re running a business or managing your own personal cash flow, it may make sense to spread the cost of necessary purchases with asset finance.
