With offices in Redhill, Manchester and Birmingham, it offers a wide range of business funding from asset-based funding and invoice finance through to commercial loans.

How can we help?
IGF offers a wide range of funding options to SMEs, including invoice and asset finance.
Invoice finance offers your business an immediate supply of cash that is directly linked to your sales. IGF converts the value of your unpaid invoices into ready working capital.
This enables your business to get instant access to the cash you’ve earned when normally you’d have to wait 30, 60 or even 90 days for debtors to settle invoices and for the money to appear in your bank account.
