Our name, Novuna, is made up of two Latin words – Novo, meaning new, and Una, meaning together.
We chose our new name when our existing parent company, Hitachi Capital Corporation, merged with Mitsubishi UFJ Lease and Finance Company Limited in April 2021. Novuna signifies a new chapter for our business and describes the collaborative, forward-looking business we have built together in the UK.
The way we do things is shaped by our core values:
Harmony, Sincerity, & Pioneering Spirit
Our Pioneering Spirit moves us to try new things and create innovative products and services our customers will love.
Sincerity means that we do what we say we're going to do and take our promises and commitments seriously.
Harmony describes how we work together with our customers and each other. We collaborate, support each other, and treat everyone with respect.
