Belinda Roughton
Director of Property and Business Finance with Invoice Finance Solutions

Acuity and their team are by far one of the best and easiest to deal with finance companies I have ever dealt with, and I would highly recommend them. They turned around a £200,000.00 bridge for me in 4 days during lockdown when two other lenders had let me down. I could not recommend Acuity and the team more highly!

MD of Serviced offices company, Grimsby

Having been let down by another lender, we were really concerned that the site was going to be lost and with a lot of time invested we asked our broker to find us a solution with a lender that could do the loan within the timescales.  Acuity was great from the start, understood our needs and pulled out all the stops to get the deal over the line, looking forward to working with them again.
