Why Us

Partners Finance & Lease is proud to be a longstanding lender. Not only are we experts in commercial finance and asset leasing products, we understand business and are specialists in transport and equipment.


When it comes to business, do you prefer working directly with a decision-maker? Here at Partners Finance & Lease we’re proud of our relational approach to asset finance which continues to be a core value since it was founded by CEO Francis Fitzgerald in 2003.

Asset finance

We offer nationwide coverage wherever you are. Whether it’s finance on a new truck for an owner-driver in Timaru, a Methven manufacturer, frost fans at a Queenstown vineyard, or fleet finance for utes heading to a contractor’s yard in Invercargill.
