Graphene Commercial Finance launches

Tom Bamber and Jack Poxon, former directors at 2XL Commercial Finance and Cynergy Bank, have joined forces to create a commercial finance broker targeting borrowers who have funding requirements of more than £1m.

Graphene Commercial Finance is based in Manchester and has a goal to support development and investment projects across the country in the commercial and residential sectors. The group said that it can access funding from high street banks, challenger banks, debt funds, and private lenders for its clients.

“Graphene is a bespoke and value-add funding advice business, founded by two passionate and experienced former bankers, seeking to establish itself as a prominent partner within the UK’s second city,” said Bamber.

“Having operated as a broker in this space for the last five years, the opportunity to combine with Jack locally was too good to overlook.”

Poxon added: “Graphene is a coming together of myself and Tom, leveraging our banking backgrounds to the benefit of the region’s property groups and trading businesses.

“We ensure borrowers have access to the most appropriate funding solutions, on the best possible terms, delivered professionally.”

Bamber has more than 10 years of experience in the financial world, having worked at Barclays, Santander, and 2XL Commercial Finance. Poxon has a similar level, having gotten his start at Lloyds Banking Group before joining Cynergy Bank.

Bamber and Poxon have experience working with corporates and SMEs, as well as public bodies, in financing and residential investment assets, purpose-built student accommodation, and other development projects.
