Asset finance comparison site Co.Hub ties up with LDF

Price comparison site Co.Hub will use UK brokerage LDF for incoming UK asset finance enquiries channelled through its recently launched site

Co.Hub managing director Philip Brennan, previously of MoneySupermarket.com, said the deal was an exclusive tie-up for the foreseeable future.

“All enquiries will go to LDF, they are a firm we have known for many years and we feel that they are a good source that our customers can use,” said Brennan in an interview with Leasing Life.

“LDF will broker a deal [for clients] to try and find the best option for their needs.”

Representatives from LDF confirmed the relationship, to be used for introductions and lead generation facilities.

Brennan said lessors were keen to see how they could fit onto the site with some in negotiations to have direct representation.

“Banks are lending less now than they did, which gives alternative lenders more of an opportunity,” said Brennan.

“Alternative lenders were desperate to come on board with us: they want a place where people can see them and can see what they are doing.”
