Future Leap Finance
Supporting the Future Leap Community finance their journey to Net Zero
Financing a sustainable future
Future Leap is a community of change-makers. The network gives organisations the space, knowledge, contacts and tools to accelerate their sustainability journey.
The launch of Future Leap Finance sits perfectly within this ethos. Our mission is to provide network members with financing options to support sustainable business activities through:
- Property retrofit & development
- Environmental technologies
Future Leap Finance only works with a panel of lenders, wherever possible, that have progressive ESG policies in place.
Whereas it appears the business finance world has adopted strategies to target the sustainability market, this in the main is merely a marketing exercise. Future Leap Finance aims to provide the right facilities for our customers to invest in assets, but importantly to provide ongoing reporting to both the customer and the lender on the impact that the investment has made from a sustainability perspective. This unique solution provides essential data that can be measured allowing customers and lenders to report effectively.
Professional yet personal service is a core principle to ensure that we support all network members from start-ups to larger enterprises.
Traditional Hire Purchase agreements support our members’ requirements for investment into their business. Transparent agreements allow for well-priced arrangements that protect the customer. Assets funded range from technology equipment and vehicles to substantial renewable energy investments
Sometimes a more straightforward loan arrangement is a better fit when considering an investment in the business. These can be used for working capital requirements or for investing in projects that don’t have a requisite hard asset. Short term loans are available for bridging purposes.
Customers have swung to demanding that they can procure equipment & solutions on a monthly payment basis. Sales-aid leasing supports our network of suppliers to be able to satisfy customer demands whilst benefitting from a cash injection into their company with each contract executed.
For those occasions where there is the opportunity to structure core contracts to allow cash to be released without the requirement for a separate customer debt instrument. Ideal for companies selling on a subscription and for higher ticket value transactions.
A welcome addition to the portfolio allows Future Leap Finance to put in place a well-priced scheme for members selling to consumers and wanting to offer monthly price options. Support to ensure that members are in line with FCA regulatory requirements means that schemes are up & running in weeks not months.
