“I am delighted to be joining Liquidity Club at a time when the market is really picking up and everyone is keen to get back to doing business. Funding is going to be vital for businesses in this recovery phase as Government supported loans start to be repaid and VAT / rent and rates deferments come to an end. It will be our mission to provide our clients with the best funding arrangements tailored to their specific requirements.
Being part of the ARMCo Group gives us a unique proposition as a true one-stop-shop for SMEs. I particularly love the team’s ethos of working with people they get on with and that they always seek to build long term relationships – I truly believe this is how business should be done.
I’m really looking forward to getting to work and seeing what difference I can make”.

I know that having Jim on board will be a great addition for both Liquidity Club, and also an our wider group”.
