Kingsley Asset Finance celebrates 25th anniversary

Let us take you back to 1995; Take That had four weeks at number one with Back for Good, John Major was Prime Minister and Bill Clinton was the US President. The summer was hot, hot, hot and OJ Simpson was found ‘Not Guilty’. Princess Di gave ‘that’ interview with Martin Bashir whilst Bet Lynch served her last pint in The Rovers and left Corrie!

All in all it sounds a pretty unremarkable year, but it was the year that Jonathan Smith founded Kingsley Asset Finance in a small Lancashire town, Chorley near Preston.

Starting from modest beginnings, Kingsley Asset Finance has seen real growth over the years. We’ve steadily increased the size of our ‘own book’, and by investing in our people, we now have an experienced team, who pride themselves on a first class service they deliver to our direct customers and brokers alike.  

Since 1995 we have assisted a wide variety of SMEs in Lancashire and countrywide with their asset finance requirements… and 2019 was no exception! We converted 300 deals from 125 supporting brokers and direct customers, which equated to over £12m of funded assets and loans. We also launched our new website and exhibited at two successful business expos.

We are looking to have our best year ever in 2020, a new decade and our 25th anniversary…….let the party begin!

We are very active across our social media platforms so keep a look out on how we intend to celebrate our anniversary this year!

Partying on one side, we are still here to help our brokers and customers with their asset finance & refinance requirements. So please send your proposals to
