The NACFB Commercial Finance Expo 2022 

Cornerstone Commercial Finance team

We were thrilled to return to this year’s NACFB Commercial Finance Expo, held in the NEC, Birmingham.    

The expo is the UK’s largest trade show for commercial finance intermediaries. A great networking opportunity for our commercial team to meet with new and well-established lenders within the industry to further improve our knowledge and maintain our level of competence in this market, ultimately benefitting our clients.   

Our commercial team enjoyed a great day of networking, building key relationships and catching up with familiar faces in the industry. The members’ lounge provided a good base for more in-depth “coffee catch-ups” with key partners. By the end of the day, we had secured a number of funding offers for a range of clients.  

Haydn Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer at Cornerstone Finance Group, Said:   

“It was great to see over 2500 attendees, an even bigger turnout than last year. We’ve enjoyed catching up with those we haven’t seen in person for a long time and, hopefully, we’ll see everyone again at the NACFB Awards later in the year. Overall, it was another hugely valuable experience, and I look forward to next year. “ 

Panel discussion at NACFB Commercial finance expo 2022


The team also attended some interesting debates and gained fantastic insights from the wide range of speakers. This year’s event focused on three themes that initiated some meaningful discussions: the current global and domestic economy and its impact on the lending community; the obstacles holding back the UK’s ethnic minority-led SMEs; and the government’s proposed EPC rules.
