At Lombard, our ethos is ‘forward thinking finance’. We are the experts in asset finance, and we’ve been doing it for over 150 years in enabling businesses to grow and to thrive.
As long-term supporters of the Agricultural sector we remain committed to playing our part in helping drive the continued success of this dynamic sector.
As the UK has now left the EU single market and customs union, we will continue to see the business landscape change. The outlook for the UK Agricultural industry, and associated legislation, technological development, and evolving consumer behaviour together with the climate change agenda being at the forefront, means that we are in a period of transition. The full impact will take some time to be fully realised. But what we’ve also seen time and again is the resilience of this industry in periods of change, and that, despite challenging conditions, the sector continues to make a major contribution to the UK economy.

Supporting future innovation and technology, together with a skilled and joined up workforce is at the forefront of our thinking. Agri-Tech will change the way food is produced and managed going forward as new technologies create not only more sustainable options but also greater precision and efficiency. Lombard is proud to be a part of Agri-TechE, an industry leading network.
Our dedicated team of agricultural specialists are here to support you throughout this journey.
”There may never have been a more testing time to be a farmer, as agriculture in the UK faces a perfect storm of challenging market conditions. As well as the focus to feed a growing population, in a more sustainable way farmers are now seeing significantly increased costs of feed, fuel and fertliser. With so much uncertainty around the external business environment, it might be easy to become fatalistic. However, we know farmers are adaptable, but is essential that we understand the current challenges and support the industry through adressing these challenges” Rachael Watson, Head Of Agriculture
