Bolton finance firm appoints experienced commercial broker

Bolton finance firm appoints experienced commercial broker

North West firm, Hilton Smythe Finance, has appointed a new Commercial Finance Broker to its team.

Alex Heylings brings more than 10 years’ experience in the financial sector to Hilton Smythe Finance, which is part of the Hilton Smythe Group.

Prior to joining the firm, Alex held several banking positions at HSBC in retail and commercial banking, which involved advising individuals and companies on finance solutions to enable business growth.

In 2015, Alex founded his own finance brokerage, Nova Commercial Finance, aiming to fill the gap left by High Street Banks to help those struggling to raise funding for small business ventures.

Hilton Smythe Finance helps potential buyers to access finance when purchasing a business. It is fully regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Alex said: “I’m delighted to join the team at Hilton Smythe Finance. I pride myself on customer care and have a great deal of experience working closely with business owners to understand their firms inside and out, the challenges they face and their long-term vision.

“Independent financial brokerage is essential to many people looking to buy a business, as the majority of people wanting to make a purchase will not be able to entirely self-fund the venture. Working with a broker gives them that peace of mind, as they know they will get impartial advice, while saving time in their search for funding.”

Paul Williams, Head of Financial Services at Hilton Smyth Finance, said: “With an extensive commercial banking background, Alex can assess, advise and assist our clients with sourcing all types of business and property finance. We have a great deal of confidence in him.

“We’re incredibly pleased to have him on board and know he will be an asset to the team.”

" I pride myself on customer care and have a great deal of experience working closely with business owners to understand their firms inside and out, the challenges they face and their long-term vision."
