At Woodsford TradeBridge we believe that the UK banking sector is letting down strong, growing businesses by failing to meet their need for the effective working capital which is so vital for growth.
We offer a range of flexible working capital solutions designed to sit seamlessly alongside existing banking relationships. Our programmes give our clients the agility to respond quickly to opportunities in the market, secure critical supplier relationships, expand into new markets, and fund innovation or growth.
Every business is different, and we thrive on that diversity. But, Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs) have some very particular challenges. Challenges that at Woodsford Tradebridge, we understand.
From smaller trade and pharmacy finance facilities starting at £100K up to our £10M supplier finance programmes for larger companies, we use our technology and creativity to deliver the maximum positive impact to your business.
We know that…
Cash flow can sometimes be an issue, along with the timing of purchasing.
Negotiating beneficial early payment discounts can sometimes be difficult.
Innovation and growth for your business requires these issues to disappear.
We see these issues in businesses every day.
How we can help
Every facility comes with our straightforward pledge: we will treat you fairly with no hidden fees, no lock-ups and no fuss.
At Woodsford Tradebridge we believe the UK banking sector is letting down strong, growing businesses. Inflexible banking practices and regulations mean that the working capital, which is so vital for growth, is simply not available to some SMBs.
With access to private funding, our flexible working capital solutions are designed to sit seamlessly alongside your existing banking relationships. And because our processes are fast and flexible, we can give you the agility to respond quickly to market opportunities, secure critical supplier relationships and ultimately fund a better future for your business.
How we do it
You will meet only business experts, with years of solid financial expertise behind them. Their single focus is to understand your business, and fund flexible working capital solutions that respond to your needs, delivering tangible befits to you and your supply chain.

And once on board, you will speak with Client Services Managers who are real people – and they are friendly and responsive!
