Agri-Tech Express with Lombard Asset Finance: Asset Finance Explained – An Enabler for Technology Adoption?

Tuesday 30th March @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Cash is king – or is it? Business growth in agriculture has traditionally followed a familiar path of borrowing against assets such as land or property.

But the capex involved in the adoption of some emerging technologies and practices – plus the changes facing the industry – mean that new and creative ways of financing new equipment and technology acquisition are needed.

If you have an ambitious growth plan for your farm or agri-food business, asset finance can be one way in which you can access the equipment you need, without having to buy it up front.

Lombard Asset Finance will be exploring how you can use asset finance to secure the equipment you need to grow, as well as flexible finance options could be available to help meet business needs in this fast-changing world.

Join the event to discuss in more detail:

  • What can you use asset finance for?
  • Why not just use cash?
  • Why don’t I just borrow the money from my bank?
  • Is it true that asset finance offers the protection of a fixed-term contract?


We’ll be hearing about Lombard’s ‘forward thinking finance’ ethos, building on over 150 years of expertise in providing finance options to enable businesses to not only survive, but also thrive.

If you are looking to secure significant investment in new agri-tech, or if you are a technology provider exploring ways to help ease the adoption of your technology in the agri-food industry, this is the event for you.

We’ll be discussion how the industry is changing, as well looking at debt and equity finance options and exploring the risk appetites among investors to support business growth.
