DND Finance – Who We Are

DND Finance is a multinational commercial equipment finance provider. We originated in Canada in 2000 as D&D Leasing, opened in the UK as D&D Leasing UK Ltd. in 2009, and as of December 2018 we rebranded the company to DND Finance.  We also have plans to expand to other regions in the coming years.

DND Finance was founded by Rev. Dr. K. Bill Dost for a distinct purpose: to serve the entrepreneurial segment of the small- and medium-sized business sector, helping these companies grow at the grassroots level.

We believe that entrepreneurs are the backbone of the global economy.  As their businesses grow, they grow businesses all around them. It’s a catalytic effect that creates more jobs, improves lives and leads to a prosperous community.

Along with helping entrepreneurs succeed, DND Finance provides vendor financing programs to manufacturers and works closely with small-ticket brokers of equipment finance. We also provide professions loans to professionals, from physicians to accountants and architects, to help their businesses grow.
