In The Community

Update: The Australian and New Zealand operations of Bibby Financial Services were acquired by Scottish Pacific Business Finance in late 2015 to create Australia’s largest non-bank invoice finance specialist. Welcome to our website.

At Scottish Pacific, we are proud to have wonderful staff who are very active in local communities, supporting a variety of charities and good causes with a wide range of fundraising activities. As a business we match every dollar raised and we give each staff member one day of special leave as a dedicated volunteer day, each year. This allows them to spend time working with charities and specialist support groups to make a difference beyond fundraising.

Here are some of the activities our people are involved in.
