D&D Leasing, founded in Canada in 2000, has predominantly been known as a sub-prime lease and loan funder with a very specific appetite. However, over the years we have worked with the full range of small businesses in all sectors as the business expanded.
We’ve been around collectively for almost 17 years and in that time, while we have expanded our offerings significantly from where we started, most customers got to feel like they know us.
However, with Productivity Media, the case wasn’t so straightforward. In this instance, they had a very compelling need — a loan with a unique flavour to it that most funders could not get their heads around.
An international challenge
Productivity was founded in Canada and had expanded into the UK due to growing business concerns, just like D&D Leasing had. Like many companies based abroad, it had run into some of the more difficult parts of the UK financial system when addressing the need to raise credit, especially when it came to Productivity’s line of work: the film industry.
Film finance has had its day in the UK and, for many, its time has come and gone. Thankfully, D&D Leasing wasn’t affected by history.
