Sole ownership of NB Entrust will enable us to accelerate integration of our property management and FM services.The specialist expertise of the Asset Factor team has been invaluable over the last three years. Together we’ve driven through service improvements, better value pricing and an integrated IT platform. These improvements are fundamental to delivering our long term strategy and we are hugely appreciative of The Asset Factor’s input.”
