With over twenty years in asset finance and leasing experience Rev. Dr. K. Bill Dost, President and Managing Director of the D&D Leasing Group of Companies has an extensive understanding of funding small ticket transactions. Starting D&D Leasing and Dost a unique perspective on the marketplace and where to focus the energies of the company itself.
To that end D&D Leasing has found itself focusing on the Small Ticket transactions, those generally seen to range between £1000 GBP and £250,000 GBP for a niche class of customer. These customers, often classified as near prime, subprime or difficult to ban, are the class of customer D&D Leasing encounters every day. The corner shop, the owner-operator, the small business, the start up operation. Not quite ready to be banked and yet still in need of financing; whether it’s a computer, a set of desks, manufacturing equipment or even loans, D&D Leasing is there to help support these often, but not necessarily, early start operations.
Dost recognized the need for financing those operations that couldn’t seek bank assistance, due either to past poor credit performance or no credit history in his native Canada when he started the original operation back in 2000. Prior to incepting D&D Leasing he noted that “the prime or blue chip customer really had no trouble finding finance, however, if you had bruised credit it would be a very difficult road to seek out finance, most companies would turn you away, or require egregious down payment schedules from you, we simply wanted to be different, we wanted to provide finance to anyone who could prove they had a shot at making it, but just needed a hand up, so we set out to do so.”
