Lee Tillcock, editor of Business Moneyfacts, commented: "The previous 12 months have proven more profitable for many businesses and their broker and finance providing partners. As the appetite for funding grows, brokers and providers have embraced the opportunity to boost trading and growth levels.

"An air of confidence has been apparent in the business finance sector and we have entered 2016 with renewed hope. The 16th annual Business Moneyfacts Awards has recognised those providers and brokers involved in the business finance world who have made a firm commitment to excellence that will serve them well during the next year."
