­Our Products

Lease finance

Portman buys the asset – whether it be hard or soft – and you use it over an agreed contract period in return for monthly rental payments. At the end of the lease agreement, you can choose to purchase the asset, hand it back or continue to lease it. With rates from as little as 2.5%, a lease finance agreement can offer flexible payment terms and costs can be offset against tax.

Hire purchase

This is similar to a lease agreement in that it frees up working capital, however you are the purchaser. After all payments have been made, your business becomes the owner of the equipment, either automatically or on payment of a final option to purchase fee. Flexible repayments and low rates from 2.5% are available.

Commercial loan

You know your business better than anybody, and a commercial loan gives you the freedom to use the monies as you see fit. Whether it’s consolidating existing finance, growing your business or buying another, a loan from us can help.


Refinance allows you to release locked in equity from your assets. These unlocked funds can then be used as you require, from consolidating existing finance, growing your business or purchasing another.
