Unity Trust Bank has been shortlisted for three prestigious NACFB Commercial Lender Awards. Our ethical bank is up for: ‘Specialist Lender of the Year’ for our work in the healthcare sector, ‘Community Lender of the Year’ and ‘Deal of the Year’.
The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) is the UK’s largest independent trade body for finance brokers. They have 2,000 members and 140 lender patrons. This year’s awards attracted a record 270 entries.
Unity is now calling for NACFB members’ support in the ‘Specialist Lender of the Year’ and ‘Community Lender of the Year’ categories. Members’ votes will be combined with the judges’ selections to select the category winner and highly commended entrants.
Linda Martin is the National Business Development Manager at Unity Trust Bank. She said: “For 40 years, Unity has delivered on its mission to create a better society. We do not simply want to maximise our profits.
“We support businesses to make a positive difference in their communities. It’s fantastic to have that impact recognised in the Community Lender and Deal of the Year categories.
“We also draw on our extensive experience to offer specialist support for the healthcare sector. This is enabling an increasing number of businesses to expand their services. So, we’re delighted to be shortlisted as a Specialist Lender of the Year too.
“Our valued and trusted relationships with brokers and intermediaries have enabled businesses across the UK to access vital lending, helping them to prosper and make a positive impact in local communities.”
The winners of the NACFB Commercial Lender Awards will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on Thursday 30th November at the Westminster Park Plaza.
Voting opens on Tuesday, October 24 and closes at 5pm on Tuesday, October 31.
