Supporting women in business
Halo are proud to partner with Women In Business and have a strong track record of supporting female-owned businesses of all kinds, including fitness centres, retail outlets and childcare providers to name just a few.
One such business that Halo worked very closely with is new start childcare company Rocketeers, who required funding to start a nursery.
Speaking about working with Halo, Rocketeers’ founder Ciara Keane said, “As a new business, Rocketeers had a need for funding for various aspects of the business, and Halo were there to support us with that growth.
“Halo were extremely helpful from the start, they were extremely accessible and made the transaction easy. As a new business, we didn’t know where to get help to enable us to fulfil our growth goals, but Halo did everything they could to help us achieve them.
“Dealing with other finance companies has been hard work, but Halo were different. They performed all the necessary due diligence on our company whilst making it easy for us, we were not held up by unnecessary paperwork or delays.
“We are so happy with our experience that we have used Halo twice now, and are working with them on further funding for a phone system and car finance. They have helped us to see what is possible for our growing business and we would highly recommend them to others in the same position.”
Getting the best finance solutions for our customers
In addition to supporting businesses pioneered by women, Halo is proud to boast a market-leading proportion of female brokers among its staff. Founder Luke Hultquist said, “Halo currently have over 60 UK-based lenders on our panel, meaning that we can almost always secure an extremely competitive finance deal for our customers. Unlike many brokers we also lend on our own book which gives us the ultimate flexibility for creditworthy new start businesses.”
Halo’s website, www.hcfl.co.uk offers a flavour of what we can do: asset finance, business loans, commercial mortgages, short term loans and much more.
For applications from new start businesses, we like to see:
• Three months business bank statements (if trading) or personal bank statements if not from each Director;
• A business plan showing cash flow, profit and loss statement, balance sheet, and details of any committed orders;
• List of assets/purchases that the funding would be used for; and
• Confirmation that at least one of the Directors is a homeowner, and if not, details of a third party guarantor that is a homeowner with a good credit history.
Halo’s partnership with some of the UK’s leading funders means we can guarantee the fastest possible turnaround for your application, and we are able to support you every step of the way.
