Wyelands Bank has appointed Jim Higginbotham as managing director of its asset finance division.

Jim has spent 27 years in the finance industry, during which time he has worked in commercial and investment banking, wealth management, and asset and invoice finance.

Prior to joining Wyelands Bank, Jim was managing director and co-owner at Specialist Asset Finance.

He has also previously served at Lombard, where he was initially head of risk before becoming managing director of corporate specialist sales.

In his new role, Jim will be responsible for developing the specialist bank’s asset finance offering.

Jim’s appointment is part of Wyelands Bank’s strategy to help manufacturing and industrial businesses to trade and grow through specialist finance solutions.

“Wyelands Bank is setting its stall out as a bank that makes sure it understands its customers’ businesses, so it can help them to grow,” said Jim.

“Understanding what a business really needs enhances the bank’s ability to deliver the most appropriate solutions for [its] customers, and the addition of an asset finance capability enhances this ability still further. 

“I’m looking forward to being part of the bank’s growth story and working with the team to develop our offering and help more businesses grow and prosper.”

Iain Hunter, CEO at Wyelands Bank, added: “At Wyelands Bank, we get to know and understand our customers and provide them with access to decision makers from day one.  

“Getting under the skin [of] our customers’ businesses in this way means we ultimately help them to trade, grow and create jobs.  

“Jim’s track record in asset finance and appointment is further evidence that we will continue to tailor high-quality solutions for each of our customers.”
