WHO WE ARE
“Speirs Finance” is well known and respected in the history of the New Zealand Asset Finance sector. It’s a trusted brand whose past success was underpinned by a departure from employed sales staff to highly motivated and experienced self-employed Finance Professionals as Agents for the business.
Speirs Agents “Kept it Real” and earned a solid reputation through honest graft; providing second to none asset finance support to business owners and individuals alike. After operating for more than 30 years, the business was sold by its owners, Speirs Group Limited, in September 2008.
The brand was successfully re-established in February 2014 by its original owners and a top tier New Zealand private equity partner, Maui Capital who focus on Partnering with successful operators to build and grow successful businesses.
Since this time, Maui Capital have partnered with two other significant Private Equity firms to broaden its interest in equipment and finance related entities and Speirs Finance is now a trading division of L & F Limited, a Specialist Equipment Finance business.
The goal of Speirs Finance is to build on the track record of the original Speirs business and to create a new benchmark in the NZ Asset Finance industry, providing good old fashioned localised service that delivers the assets you want when you need them and structured to recognise asset useful life while being sensitive to cashflow.
We also encourage all business owners to think differently about debt and consider:
Structure or term – whether these are appropriate and relevant to the economic life of the assets in the business.
Risk, personal and business – the implications of the funding choices and structures you choose.
Cash flow – the impacts of finance structure and term on cash flow and whether there is enough cash to retain good people and run the business more effectively/profitably.
A healthy appetite exists to help our customers with finance for a broad range of motor vehicles (from cars to heavy commercial vehicles), mobile and fixed plant, and business equipment…for more detail you can check out what we can finance for you.
Because KEEPING IT REAL is so important to our customers and us, we have established a nationwide network of experienced and self-employed Asset Finance professionals. They can help you make sound decisions when funding assets, which makes good sense from a business and cash flow perspective.
Our Agents are REAL business people...
You can relate to – people like you who understand the rigours and stresses of running a business. People with empathy and understanding.
You can talk to – who will make themselves available, who live in your community and can come and see you.
With industry experience to give you relevant advice that you will appreciate.
Who talk straight and won’t un-necessarily demand the world from you by way of reports.
Who are there for the long haul and are interested in building a long term partnership with you to get to know you and your business so you don’t need to keep explaining yourself.
