The NACFB events season is well under way...



Training & Education

The NACFB is committed to providing Training and Education for Commercial Finance Brokers and over the years has developed a range of training days to cover all aspects of Commercial Finance. This has included Asset Finance, Factoring and Invoice Discounting, Marketing and Fraud training to name just a few. In addition our CPD programme continues and recording is now available on line. We offer a new qualification to replace the Certificate in Commercial Mortgages, which has been written in conjunction with all the High Street banks. The Certificate in Business Banking and Conduct (CertBB&C) is the standard qualification for all our members.


Commercial Finance Expo

The Commercial Finance Expo is the only show in the UK dedicated to the business finance community. Representatives from funders across the business finance arena will be exhibiting. This year the NACFB conference will be held during the Expo, welcoming speakers who can offer a keen insight into different parts of the industry..



FindSMEfinance lists sources of commercial finance for small businesses, including leasing and hire purchase arrangements, commercial mortgages, and invoice discounting and factoring. It will allow you to search by region or postcode, and will take you directly to the brokers who are best placed to help you find the funding you need.

Countdown to EXPO 2015

British Business Bank among guests at Commercial Finance Expo 2015

With less than one month to go until the NACFB’s sixth Commercial Finance Expo on 17 June, the NACFB can announce the presence of some big and influential names.

We will be joined by a representative of the British Business Bank. The British Business Bank was set up in 2012 to access other forms of finance for SMEs outside of the obvious lenders. We are also very pleased that the FCA will be undertaking a short presentation certain to be of interest to all brokers, lenders and funders, and that they have also agreed to be part of our compliance session which is one of the topics that we will run in the Conference Theatre.

New this year is a marquee-style Business Lounge, which joins the Conference Theatre as a venue-within-a-venue. All of them are set to be full on the day, as we are expecting a crowd of 1300 delegates. With 120 exhibitors, including dozens of names here for the first time this year, we’ve increased the size and scope of an event that’s been growing since it first began in 2010.
