Bespoke, flexible finance solutions for businesses of all shapes and sizes.


Every business loan is an acorn of potential for an ambitious business. Capital enables growth, and growth drives success.

But it shouldn’t feel like moving a mountain to secure the funding your business needs. As a highly experienced (FCA-certified) finance brokerage, we provide bespoke finance to meet the needs of each individual client.

We’re not a bank and we don’t behave like one. We’re flexible, fast and friendly –  with a wealth of experience and expertise.

Acorn is independently owned. We offer a precise, personal service tailored to your business needs; not ‘one-loan-fits-all’. Our team has over 50 years’ experience in providing the correct finance to our long standing customers. We’re proud to be market leaders for the legal, accountancy and insurance broking sectors. We have a handpicked panel of lenders who provide Acorn top quality service, with some giving us access to unsecured products not available to other brokers.

Our asset finance knowledge & funding partners enable us to put together deals & credit lines that give our clients the confidence to grow their business without being over exposed to their bank.

We’re one of the first green business finance brokers too; we’re proud that our offices are paper-free and planet-friendly. We put money where our mouth is too – 3% of our annual profit goes into our Green Acorn Fund. 

“We really understand our clients’ businesses and care about building long-term relationships.”

Stuart Gibson, Managing Director
