OUR HISTORY

The Asset Alliance Group was established in 2012. Our origins lie however with the coming together of Asset Alliance Ltd, formed in 2010 and led by former commercial banking and lending specialist Willie Paterson, and ATE Truck and Trailer Sales Ltd, who were established in 1995 by Alan Evans and James Jenkins. This merger was facilitated with the investment of private equity funder, Cabot Square Capital, who retain the major shareholding in the business.

This was a unique coming together of two sides of the industry, combining the expertise of a CV leasing company with a highly successful retailer of used commercial vehicles. It created a new type of service provider that understands both finance and the criticality of accurate residual value setting and workshops to provide a tailored and higher value service for clients. We believe we retain that point of differentiation in the marketplace today.
