Key Finance is a specialist lease company, providing competitive lease finance products. We are a unique and long-established family-run firm servicing major national and global businesses.

We have a fondness for tricky stuff - and a reputation for getting it done.

Key Finance was established in 1987 by our Chairman John Mounsey who had the vision of establishing a new kind of financing, thanks to a long and successful career straddling both IT and leasing at blue chip corporations including IBM, ICL and ITEL.

He brought his vision for new leasing options to Key Finance, initially doing the same as he’d done previously – renting mainframes and PCs – but with ambitions to offer more, and to a wider spectrum of clients.

John wrote the first reference book on leasing in 1988, helped Hewlett Packard to develop its own lease strategy when PCs went mainstream in 1991 and – thanks to Key Finance’s fast-growing reputation in the world of finance – quickly attracted clients outside of the IT sector. Since then Key Finance has helped some of the biggest international companies with finance options.

And whilst retaining those blue chip clients, Key Finance now works with companies of all sizes throughout the UK – and in many different sectors. But all have the same requirements: to grow their businesses, by securing bespoke and flexible finance.

Today, John Mounsey remains as Chairman of Key Finance, with his son Henry taking a front seat alongside the rest of the team. However the business practices, ideals and ethics remain the same as when Key Finance first started serving the IT community nearly 30 years ago.
