About Us

our beliefs

What We Believe In

DAS is a finance solution company based in London. Since we opened our business in 2019, we’ve worked hard to stay ahead of the game.

Some finance companies have become set in their ways and the old way of doing things; this leaves them unequipped to deal with the constantly evolving market and legislation.

We are determined to avoid that pitfall by keeping up with the times. We will always fit our strategies to allow us to work closely with our clients, allowing us to offer the best advice while always keeping their wants and needs firmly in mind.

We’ve always admired speed, as long as it’s coupled with professionalism. That’s pretty evident in our fast response time and ability to identify comprehensive fiance solutions in a short time frame, even for more complex cases.
