Name: Rob Mercer

What area do you specialise in?  Invoice Finance

How long have you worked for Ashley Finance? 17 months

How long have you worked in the industry? 28 years

What is the best thing about your job? That no day is the same.

What is the most interesting deal you have ever worked on? We were approached last year by a broker whose client was experiencing severe financial difficulties after their largest customer cancelled orders and delayed making payments to them. We were able to step in and provide a factoring facility to enable them to release cash in their ledger and thus make critical supplier payments and pay wages. Our ability to do this quickly preserved the business and saved 12 jobs.

What do you think sets Ashley Finance apart from the other lenders? Our ability to think outside the box and provide fast solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

What are your predictions for the finance industry in 2018? Demand for invoice finance still remains high and the market is more competitive than ever. Our continued efforts to provide effective solutions to clients needs and problems should see Ashley continue to prosper during 2018.

Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you? I am an avid collector of trainers.
