Fiducia Commercial Network business finance case study Neo and Playter

Neo Achieved Business Finance for Building Services Contractor through Playter, facilitated by Fiducia Commercial Network.


Fiducia Commercial Network, the UK’s fastest growing commercial finance Appointed Representative (AR) network, is the first AR network to sign an introducer agreement with Playter, the NACFB Patron business finance lender.

It’s common for network members to have clients with very specific requirements, and when Neo Business Finance received this enquiry, their access to Playter as an AR of Fiducia Commercial Network provided the most suitable client outcome.

A fintech company specialising in innovative cash flow solutions that streamline funding processes and address the evolving needs of SMEs.

Both parties work across a diverse range of industries and help clients gain access to working capital and cash flow funding.

The Scenario:

The client, a prominent building services contractor, faced a common challenge in the industry: managing cash flow amidst ongoing projects. Despite a robust pipeline of work, the need to invest in materials and labour upfront often strained their financial resources.

Neo Business Finance, committed to getting the right deal to support the client and their business, tapped into Fiducia Commercial Network’s lending panel and found the solution with Playter, a newly joined lender to panel specialising in innovative cashflow solutions.

The result is the first Fiducia Commercial Network deal with Playter – and a great customer outcome for Neo’s client.

The Solution:

Product: Buy Now, Pay Later Cashflow Solution

Loan Amount: £360,000

Playter’s B2B “Buy Now, Pay Later” cashflow solution for SMEs emerged as a lifeline for the client. The innovative offering allowed them to spread the cost of specific invoices, easing the burden of immediate financial pressure and ensuring a healthy cash flow for the upcoming months.

Commenting on the partnership and successful deal, Playter said, “We are thrilled to have officially completed our first Fiducia deal with Gareth at Neo Business Finance Ltd. We’re confident this will be the first of many SMEs we’ll be able to help, thanks to our partnership with Fiducia.”

The collaboration between Neo and Playter proved instrumental in addressing the client’s cash flow challenges. Having access to Fiducia Commercial Network’s wide lender panel means the building services contractor could effectively manage their financial obligations without compromising project timelines or quality of work.

Speaking favourably of her experience with Neo, Emma Lopes, broker account manager at Playter, said, “The Neo team are fast with responses and a treat to work with, so glad to have them on board.”

Future Outlook:

The successful execution of this deal sets a promising precedent for future collaborations between Neo, Playter, and AR businesses within the Fiducia Commercial Network. This latest collaboration is the perfect example of what the network is here to help network members achieve.

Gareth Davies, Managing Director at Neo Said, said, “With this facility being such an invaluable cashflow tool to clients, we expect to transact plenty more of these deals with Playter in the future.”

Through strategic partnerships and innovative financial solutions, Neo and Playter set a great example of commitment to supporting businesses to overcome financial hurdles.

By leveraging the resources and expertise within Fiducia Commercial Network, they pave the way for sustainable growth and success for SMEs across various industries.
