About us

Introducing Propel

­Propel (formerly Henry Howard Finance Group) was established in 1996 to provide flexible and accessible finance to SMEs across the country.

Now, more than 20 years on, Propel has grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent finance houses, helping more than 40,000 businesses across the UK to access finance to purchase business critical equipment quickly and easily.

Our progressive approach creates competitive advantage for vendors and SME’s alike and sets us apart.

We are small enough to care, and deliver a brilliant service to our customers, and big enough to have the expertise and technology to be a leader in SME finance.
