Transforming Businesses. Funding Ambition.

Praetura Commercial Finance is a dynamic, well-capitalised independent asset based lender with a distinctive entrepreneurial outlook and a strong commercial appetite to fund ambitious UK businesses.

Since Praetura Commercial Finance was founded, we have structured and delivered innovative working capital solutions for a variety of event-driven transactions, including acquisitions, MBOs, turnarounds and growth requirements.

There are two golden threads running throughout our business; our commitment to a relationship-driven approach and our ability to structure and deliver multi-product, multi-asset facilities, combining invoice discounting, stock, plant & machinery, property and cash flow lending.

With our people, proposition and process and strong key business introducer relationships, we look forward to building on an established platform, enabling more SMEs to gain the transformational funding they need to fully realise their potential.

“The acquisition funded by Praetura Commercial Finance has taken us from an £11m turnover business to £19m, making our combined group a substantial player in our industry. Following the introduction of the new funding facility, we have already recorded our biggest invoicing month in the history of the company.”

They quickly put themselves in prime position to support the transaction by committing to the funding requirement and jumped precisely on what needed to be done without delay. Their communication was excellent at all times and this was incredibly important to us given that speed was an essential element of this deal. They delivered what they said they would do and acted with integrity throughout.”
