Welcome to Independent Growth Finance (IGF)

We are a leading national provider of flexible Asset Based funding solutions to UK businesses.

Independently owned, we pride ourselves on delivering unrivalled levels of customer service, creating partnerships with our clients in a way that big banks simply can’t.  

Our facilities unlock cash flow from company assets, providing funding for and often supporting event driven scenarios such as:

Growth, Acquisition, Refinance or Turnaround. 

What We Do

IGF lends to clients in the SME/Lower Middle Market space, which for IGF means businesses with a turnover between £3m and £200m.

Our highly experienced ABL team are focused on generating the highest levels of funding for your business, unlocking the value tied up in your combined business assets.

Centred around the core asset of Trade Debtors, funding can also be leveraged against company assets such as InventoryPlant & Machinery and Property.

We can also structure Cash Flow Loans, supporting profitable businesses with Mergers and Acquisition activity.

What our clients say
  • IGF got to know the company and the management team which has helped us achieve a great working relationship in a short space of time. They took the time to get to know the company’s challenges and aspirations and as a result we see this partnership continuing for many more years.

    Kerrie Murray, CFO

  • We reached out to PwC to find a finance partner that supported our vision and would also grow with us. IGF was selected due to the favourable terms offered and a professional and enthusiastic team.

    Mike Thompson, Managing Director

  • In IGF we saw a similarly entrepreneurial, pragmatic, and agile partner that fits perfectly with the direction of our business. The whole team at IGF has been superb and has moved at pace to complete the transaction, notwithstanding the challenges of the Covid-19 backdrop, and this will support our growth over the next five years.

    Jonathan Marlow, Executive Director

  • Initially, we went to a high street bank, but ultimately we needed a more flexible facility to see us through this next chapter. Every day has been different and sprung on new challenges since the start of lockdown. The facility had to be put in place quickly to allow for a 6-month window starting in August and then ramping up to our peak trading in October and November. Not only did this funding give the business a safeguard, it also ensured we could keep our team employed ahead of a recession.”

    Sue Hurst, Managing Director

  • We decided to partner with IGF because they took time to understand our business, and have significant appetite to support us, providing a flexible funding solution with sufficient headroom to accelerate the realisation of our goals. The beauty of using an alternative finance provider such as IGF, is that they are able to push the envelope in terms of facility size and covenant flexibility.
