Rob Griffin of Aspired Finance joined the Brokerplan network at the beginning of 2017. Aspired Finance are Business Partners (ARs) under our Commercial Finance package.
When did you join the network?
I joined the Brokerplan network in January of 2017. Before joining I was in an employed role as an Asset Finance Broker.
Brokerplan provides a first class back up support system when joining them. The support is superb but ultimately it is up to your own quality and belief.
The Support has been first class! The backroom team has continued to grow in number which provides a far greater knowledge bank.
90% of our business is Asset Finance, with a focus on the healthcare and dental sectors.
We managed to raise funding for a £3,000,000 practice re-structure finance!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced in establishing your brokerage and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge for me was building a new brand from scratch but I was well known within the healthcare industry which helped but honestly hard work and phone calls too.
Where does your business come from/how do you generate leads?
Having worked in the industry for 15 years many of my contacts have been pre-established.
Favourite book – most autobiographies of achievers.
