This has been an exciting 12 months at Acuity Finance – from our rebranding at the beginning of the year to the company growing and excelling as 2022 unfolded.
Read on to learn about our standout moments and what we have planned for 2023!
Firstly, our Managing Director Sarah Radley rebranded the company and launched Acuity Finance (formerly Inksmoor), bringing a range of fresh new products to the table – from bridging loans for property developments to cashflow facilities.
Our goal with the relaunch was to provide funding solutions for businesses of all sizes and best support their growth in the current market. Discover more about our relaunch as Acuity Finance.
Several improvements have been made to our website, including revamping our product pages and adding our development finance product to this area of the site, helping ensure our clients can easily find the information they’re looking for when it comes to our services.
We have also focused on dedicated and consistent strategic and organic business growth through brand development, marketing, PR and outreach. Plus, we have shared insightful content to demonstrate our industry knowledge and build up a resource for our clients to refer to – which is something we will be continuing in 2023!
In 2022, we welcomed our fantastic Operations & Systems Manager Sarah Sheehan to our team.
Sarah has over 15 years of experience in the residential and commercial property and the finance sector, transitioning from accountancy to operations. However, she has spent the last 6 years focusing on supporting businesses with building sustainable and robust processes.
She has played a lead role in developing and implementing of systems, and we are pleased to have her expertise on aboard as we enter 2023.
Earlier this year, we became a Patron lender of NACFB, demonstrating our compliance with industry standards and our ability to effectively support our client’s needs.
We also become a member of The Association of Alternative Business Finance (AABF), which similarly promotes high standards, with a mission to drive ‘Transparency, Responsibility, Fairness and Security’ within the industry.
Additionally, we featured in BusinessWorks magazine’s Autumn 2022 issue for both Hull and East Yorkshire and the West Midlands.
Over the year, we took part in many leadership groups and round tables and attended many networking events – from leading one of EDGE Creative’s Leadership Discussions in April to co-hosting a table at ORS sporting event in December.
We also held a corporate golf day in Liverpool and a Gin Making event at Piston Distillery, inviting our clients as a way of saying thank you for their support since our relaunch whilst engaging in a fun activity.
We are very excited about the year ahead, with more opportunities for us to grow and build longevity for the business.
Our Managing Director Sarah Radley explained that “our track-record is an investment for the future, and I want to continue to build a business where our team, our network and our clients are valued.”
Therefore, in 2023, we strive to further improve customer experience whilst maintaining the transparency and flexibility we currently offer with our finance solutions. We want to make it as simple as possible for our clients to obtain finance and facilitate the growth of their businesses.
We are also excited to be involved in new and exciting sponsor opportunities, including being proud sponsors of the BusinessWorks Business Guide for 2023’s Finance section, Sponsors of Worcester Property Lunch and EDGE Creative’s next networking event in March 2023.
