About

ADL Commercial Finance Ltd

ADL Commercial Finance has formed from the need of project managing the financing needs of corporate and entrepreneurial clients. Our clients have complex needs and require a diligent approach to ensuring their financing needs align with their broader legal, tax and wealth management implications.

Our Director, Mohammad Uz-Zaman, is also a certified Prince2 Project Manager, and has implemented robust systems to ensure not only an efficient client journey but one with sufficient checks to reduce the risk of unexpected obstacles that can delay completing on your project.

We are set up to handhold you throughout your financing journey and this may mean assistance in producing business plans and financial models.

We have a standard broker charge of 1%, which we may waive for existing clients of the ADL Group. We may charge an hourly rate for specialist consultancy work for those clients who are not “finance ready”.
