Banks

Although banks specialize in supplying short-term loans, they are prepared to make loans for longer periods uр to 20 years in certain circumstances.

Insurance companies

Investment trusts

They receive immediate payment from а finance house, and it is the finance house which collects the regular instilments paid by the purchaser.

There are many other specialist financial institutions which provide finance for companies. Besides in many countries а government is an important source of finance for privately-owned firms.
