What we do

From your initial inquiry, we will ensure that you are well looked after by our team. We can schedule a meeting or if you prefer not to take too much time out of your already busy schedule we can discuss your requirements by phone, skype or email. Either way, we will endeavour to completely understand your business and your requirements and find you the financial solution to fit your requirements.

We work with a wide selection of lenders to get a comprehensive review of the credit market and provide you with the analysis. All this is completely free of charge and there is no obligation to take up any offers we may present to you.


Lisa Walls-Hester set up York Lane Finance because she was frustrated with the slow progress of awareness for SMEs about alternative finance. Lisa is an accountant and has served as a senior executive in several corporate treasury and finance roles for some of the World’s largest companies. She has also owned and managed some SMEs so knows only too well the frustrations that small businesses experience accessing funding.

Lisa has been a participant and analyst in the alternative finance industry for over six years and can offer a unique insight into the market. She is a regular contributor to several industry platforms, blogs, and publishers.

Our whole team is experienced and qualified to help SMEs navigate the changing financial services landscape and get businesses the capital they need for growth. We will find the right finance solution for your business whatever stage your business is at.
