Meet The Team

Why we created Nova
Over recent years there have been many new alternative funders entering the market and now is a great time for businesses to make effective use of these innovative funding solutions. Working with a brokerage like Nova could be key to arranging appropriate finance for your business to grow and succeed.

Alex Heylings

Managing Director

Alex established Nova in 2015 after seeing how difficult it was for small businesses to access funding and wanted to create something better. Prior to starting the brokerage, Alex held several banking positions at HSBC in Retail and Commercial Banking, where he advised companies from a variety of industries on finance solutions and growth strategies.
