We are pleased to announce a new commercial partnership with Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Limited.

As the UK’s largest independent payment brokerage, we have a long history of partnership working, being trusted advisors to many financial institutions and associations across the country.

Founded in 2005 by CEO Richard Bradley, acceptcards® will become Arbuthnot Latham’s referral partner for clients requiring merchant services.

This gives clients access to markets offering specialist support on all matters of debit and credit card payments from simple customer-facing payments to fully omnichannel e-commerce solutions.

Arbuthnot Latham has built a strong reputation for relationship-led banking, offering private and commercial banking as well as wealth management and specialist finance. Established in 1833, they are experienced in advising and supporting owner-managed businesses. This new collaboration helps the bank broaden its offering to clients with access to acceptcards’® impartial merchant services advice.

Richard Bradley, Founder and CEO at acceptcards®, said: “We work with an array of banks that want to ensure their business account holders are professionally looked after when it comes to the complex world of payments. We recognise that no two businesses are the same, and because we have unparalleled access to the UK’s card processing companies, we can deliver bespoke solutions that others can’t.”

“As businesses evolve, they require the ability to adapt to changing circumstances of both theirs and their customer’s needs, something that we’ve seen more of during the pandemic. Throughout this, we are there to provide an honest appraisal covering payments and broader business plans to ensure they invest in a solution that is right for them not only now but for the future.”

Richard continued “Arbuthnot Latham is highly respected, like us they are independent and align with our ethos, of building strong meaningful relationships based on trust, while putting the client at the centre of what they do, supporting their needs to the highest standards. We are delighted to become a trusted partner and I’m looking forward to working with Kevin and his team over the coming weeks, months and years.”

Kevin Barrett, Managing Director, Banking at Arbuthnot Latham said: “Our referral agreement with Acceptcards will benefit both current and future clients. This relationship enhances the bank’s SME offering and supports clients in accessing whole of market merchant services providers.”
