Finance broker with a difference

Hi, I’m Shane and I started Finance Story to partner with business owners, help them grow their businesses and achieve their personal and business goals. I structure specialised finance solutions, to suit the unique business and personal needs of business owners, but what makes me different to other brokers?

  • 25 years of manufacturing, supply chain and business consulting experience.
  • Unique insights into the positive impact that cleverly selected property, automation/robotics and technology solutions can have on a business’s long-term profit, cash flow and ability to grow.
  • I assist UK expats in obtaining mortgages in the UK, while they live and work in Australia.
  • My commercial and technical experience ensures that I understand exactly the benefit of any capital required and I am uniquely positioned to assist you in writing a compelling business case to present to the lender.
  • An adviser you can bounce ideas off, who helps you build up a vision for your business and creates the finance solutions to get you there.
  • Extensive problem solving experience, to help you find the best solutions for your business.

I look forward to hearing your story and helping you write your next chapter.

Funding growth through technology

I have a passion for helping businesses grow, particularly through technology. I use my knowledge and experience to:-

  • Help businesses understand the different improvement and technology options available.
  • Ensure businesses have built a strong and accurate business case to present to the lenders.
    • Understand the business operations, financials and growth opportunities.
    • Drive discussion on growth opportunities not already identified.
    • Review logic used to calculate project savings, ROI and impact on profit.
    • Ensure that the business case is simple and able to be understood by non technical readers, such as lenders.
  • Create innovative technology funding solutions that best suit the client.
    • Ensure that the project is funded with the most appropriate solution.
    • Project funding fits in with other funding already in place.
    • Funding solution allows for future funding requirements to meet businesses short, medium and long term goals.
  • Work with lenders to tailor funding solutions for technology projects, that are a win win for both the business and the lender.
    • Asset secured finance for autonomous vehicles such as AMR’s.
    • Helping lenders to view autonomous vehicles as high value, relocatable assets with a strong resale value.
    • Educating lenders in return on investment and the impact these projects have on company profit and cashflow.
