An Extension of Your Leasing Department

Key Finance has been providing lease support to some of the biggest companies across the globe for over 25 years. The long-term relationships we have with these blue chip businesses is testament to our reliability, our flexibility and our company ethos of getting the job done. We’re incredibly proud of the reputation this family-run business has earned in that time and we welcome the opportunity to work with new clients of any size.

Key Finance's Leasing Activities

  • Our background is in IT equipment and, while this still represents a significant share of our business, we have extended our remit considerably over the years into areas from shop refitting to company car fleets, to aero engines, to software leasing and beyond.
  • Over the past 30 years, not only have we written most of our business with PLCs and other large blue chip corporations, we’ve also acted as financial consultants to these customers, drawing on our extensive experience and advising on borrowing strategies and handling complex financial accounts.
  • Our strategy has always been to work with strong credits. If the credit is good, we will find a way to write the deal.
  • International leasing – our experience in this area was borne from customer demand. We have since written deals on four continents and in multiple currencies including Euros, Dollars, Yen, Swiss Francs and Australian Dollars.
  • Retail store fit-outs have become something we’re very familiar with over the past 20 years. Some of our most valued customers operate in the retail space and, in certain cases, we work directly with franchisees too.
  • Investment – we have a portfolio of operating leases where we have invested the residual for the deal. Investment remains a prominent part of our business.
  • Project Based Lending – this is our newest product where we offer 100% of all the costs associated with the project, regardless of tangibility. You can find out more about this new financing tool here.
