About Mann Island Finance

We are the multi award winning Motor Finance arm of Investec Bank, and our mission is to deliver best in class service to our dealers, brokers and customers by always challenging ourselves that we can improve…and by remembering that the best people to ask ‘how’ is to ask those clients themselves!

Choosing your finance partner

Choosing the right finance partner is crucial. It goes without saying that response times, acceptance levels, value-adding capabilities, customer care, and accessibility to key people when you need them all play a part. Any relationship, though, should be measured by how it fares when things are difficult or go wrong…this is where honesty, transparency, and ‘doing the right thing’ become the differentiators.

At Mann Island, we believe wholeheartedly that this combination of service excellence and an authentic approach to honest, transparent relationships, where doing the right thing is seen as normal, sets us apart, and we are proud to share our story.

So, what’s next?

We’ve come a long way in a short space of time. However, we’re not looking to become the biggest player in the industry – our ambition is to be the best in the industry!

This, of course, is easy to say and difficult to accomplish; we fully recognise that we’ll never be able to say we’ve achieved that objective because that would mean that we believed we were as good as we could ever be; and that will never be true. We can always improve and must never think the job is done!

So, to answer the question ‘what’s next?’ our approach is simple; not only to continue challenging ourselves but also to keep talking to our customers and business partners, asking them how they would like us to improve, offering our assistance and guidance where appropriate and, most importantly, being honest about what we can and can’t do.  In short, we strive never to over-promise; but always to over-deliver on the promises we do make!

Mann Island values

Act with integrity

Integrity means treating the customer fairly and lending in a balanced, responsible way. But it impacts on us personally too; to be honest, principled and to expect the highest standards of ourselves and our colleagues.

Strive for excellence

We encourage and enable everyone to give their personal best – whatever our role. To act professionally, be flexible and strive for better to become our customers’ partner of choice.

Go further for customers

Our default setting is to go the extra mile. We already do this brilliantly and, by better supporting each other, we’ll be empowered to go further for customers, building lasting relationships.

Win together

We are one team with one goal, so we back each other and value everyone’s contribution. We listen to the views of others and treat people as we ourselves would want to be treated. We succeed, have fun and celebrate together.
