United Trust Bank named ‘Outstanding UK Bank Owned Lessor’ at the 2022 Leasing World Gold Awards

United Trust Bank (UTB) was named ‘Outstanding UK Bank Owned Lessor’ for the second year in a row at the 2022 Leasing World Gold Awards.

The prestigious awards, held at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London on the 20th October 2022, recognise the best lessors and brokers in the Asset Finance industry. The judges look for businesses which have made a real difference over the previous year and delivered a combination of strong business growth, dynamism, clever ideas and good management that has earned the respect of the winner’s peers.

UTB’s record breaking growth in 2021 has continued into this year and the division has also invested considerably in expanding the team and commencing an ambitious project to move to a cutting-edge technology platform to improve speed, efficiency and allow the business to grow.

Nathan Mollett – Head of Asset Finance – commented: “Winning the ‘Outstanding UK Bank Owned Lessor’ award for the second year in a row is an excellent achievement and recognises the sustained hard work and dedication shown by the whole team.

“Our key point of difference in the market is our encouragement of brokers to talk directly to our underwriters. With the economy still looking uncertain and many businesses challenged by rising costs, we believe this close connection between funder and broker will be even more important in helping brokers secure the funding their customers need.”
