Five Arrows Leasing has been renamed and rebranded as Five Arrows Media Finance in the latest development at the Rothschild-owned Five Arrows Leasing Group. This sees the merging of the three trading divisions Fineline Media Finance, Five Arrows Leasing and Capital Professions Finance into a single identifiable brand. Five Arrows Media Finance will continue to be headed up by Gareth Wilding (pictured), who was previously managing director of Five Arrows Leasing.
The re-organisation and rebrand is designed to simplify company operations by having a single company to contact for the leasing or financing of a wide range of products across three specialist markets.
“In everyday terms, nothing will change for our clients except the logo on our paperwork,” said Wilding. “We will continue to be the pre-eminent funder of media, broadcast and AV equipment in the UK and Northern Europe; we will continue to deliver vendor sales-aid leasing products in the specialist professions markets; and we will continue to provide innovative contract-based financing solutions for a range of requirements from enterprise level software vendors to receivables discounting options for accelerating revenues.
“However, the substantial backing we have enjoyed for the last 16 years from our shareholder, Rothschild – one of the largest financial advisory organisations in the world – will now be more visible as we prepare to meet the growth challenges of the 21st century.”
