Asset Alliance Group has been named Finance Provider of the Year for the second year running at the industry-renowned Commercial Motor Awards.

Judges singled out the business, which has almost doubled its lending facility this year to £145 million, for “growing fast by understanding the needs of operators”.

The Wolverhampton-based company, which has additional bases in Scotland, Essex and Hampshire, was also commended for having “quickly commanded an established brand known for providing sound financial solutions in an ever-moving marketplace and industry”.

Its independence means Asset Alliance has complete flexibility to recommend and supply any make or model of commercial vehicle, and as the Group uses its own funds it can offer more flexible and tailored finance packages than traditional lenders.

Founder and CEO Willie Paterson says: “We’re over the moon to retain this award. To be chosen as the very best in the business for two years in a row is truly humbling. All credit goes to our incredibly hard-working and dedicated team.”

He added: “We are especially thankful that the judging panel has again recognised our commitment to provide a fresh and unique approach.

“Our original ambition was to redefine the finance options for companies looking to acquire commercial vehicles, and we have since been able to extend that offer to provide finance for all business requirements. We’re proud of how far we have come, and honoured to have been recognised once more.”

Asset Alliance Group, which was also shortlisted for the Rental, Leasing and Contract Hire Provider of the Year award, has built its reputation on providing a combination of finance and commercial vehicle expertise to fleets of all sizes.

The Finance Provider award was presented at a ceremony at The Vox Centre in Birmingham, in front of a host of peers from across the transport and logistics sector.
