Business Reporter, The Independent's publishing hub for business and management content, are showcasing successful British companies who are helping to drive the economy forward, by sharing documentary-style interviews for their 'Best of British Businesses' series. Earlier this year, The Independent invited us to film a documentary about Close Brothers Motor Finance.


The Close Brothers vision is to help the people and businesses of Britain thrive over the long term. As a vehicle finance provider, we know that buying a vehicle can be one of the biggest purchases a person can make. Buying it during a cost-of-living crisis could saddle your family or business with a heavy burden. We’re committed to enabling the people and businesses of Britain to access transport for work, life and leisure with affordable finance solutions, whatever the economy brings.


Our CEO of Motor UK and Retail Finance Ireland, Seán Kemple, gives an update on the state of the UK motor market, the options you have for purchasing vehicles, an introduction to finance and how we differ from other providers.


We’re not just there when you buy. We’re here for you now and in the future. And we’ve received industry recognition for the service we provide. 


If you have any questions at any time, if there’s a problem with the vehicle, or if your financial situation changes, we’re on hand to help.
