Peer-to-Peer Finance is an alternative business funding solution which is bringing much-needed new competition and choice to the banking market in the UK providing funds to creditworthy individuals and businesses.

Through peer-to-peer lending and invoice finance platforms, businesses and consumers can ‘rely on each other‘ for lending and borrowing services, providing lenders and investors with attractive rates of return, and credit worthy borrowers with competitive access to finance. Peer to peer business loans are now an incredibly popular form of finance, and used by businesses worldwide.
