RBTE 18: Key Finance showcasing innovative retail funding tools

Project-Based Lending, ShopFit Funder and Software Funder available to retailers of all sizes

Free leasing consultancy also available to all visitors to the Retail Business Technology Expo

COBHAM, SURREY: Key Finance is once again attending the Retail Business Technology Expo to demonstrate its unique funding opportunities for retailers.

At the heart of its business, Key Finance’s unique Project-Based Lending (PBL) tool provides complete funding for core and associated project costs at hugely competitive rates.

PBL is different because it eschews the historic restrictions of asset-based lending – instead recognising a client’s ability to pay, not the value of its assets and equipment.

A spin-off and highly-targeted tool, ShopFit Funder provides a new way for retailers to finance a huge variety of projects, including shop builds, shop fits and shop refits. Encompassing everything from fixtures & fittings and IT, through to architectural and planning costs, ShopFit Funder also covers the build and maintenance of warehouse and distribution centres.

Shopfit Funder helps retailers not just with cash flow and budgeting, but also administration, by pulling all costs associated with a project into one agreement.

Meanwhile, Key Finance can provide support for software costs too, via the Software Funder tool. Many banks do not consider software a tangible asset. However, Key Finance can fund 100% of software costs, including consultancy, implementation, training, support and licence fees. Software Funder can also include the internal costs incurred when delivering a bespoke system. In short, Key Finance can help companies in the retail sector take advantage of new software, without the need any upfront investment.

“We introduced Project-Based Lending, ShopFit Funder and Software Funder to RBTE visitors in 2017 and have since helped many retailers expand and refurbish their businesses,” said Key Finance Managing Director Henry Mounsey. “We’re delighted to be returning this year and look forward to talking to retailers of all sizes about how we can help fund their new business plans.”

You can find Key Finance on Stand H168 at the Retail Business Technology Expo.

The Key Finance team will be available to provide free retail business finance consultancy to anyone interested to learn more about how they can grow their operations.
