Look no further than the ABF portal for the ultimate in alternative finance
Find your business
Research suggests the majority of SMEs still do not have a clear understanding of alternative finance.
Well, let's hope that is about to change after Merchant Money, a finance provider for UK SMEs, highlighted the best alternative finance resources currently available in its "Ultimate Guide for SMEs".
Which portal do they feature first? Yes, you guessed it, the Alternative Business Funding (ABF) portal is given pride of place sitting alongside Nesta, the Department for Business Innovation & Skills, the CBI and British Business Bank.
And it gets better!
The section "what are the best platforms for each form" of alternative finance reads like a roll of honour of ABF portal partners Funding Circle, Funding Knight, Rebuilding Society, MarketInvoice, Platform Black all feature prominently.
To hammer home our market-leading role in alternative finance the "ultimate guide" also includes Working Capital Partners, Catalyst Finance, Crowdcube, Seedrs, Pension-led funding, DRS Bond Management, UK Bond Network, Growth Street, LDF, Angels Den, VentureFounders, Liberis, ArchOver, Boost Capital, Fleximize, iwoca, United Kapital, Capiota and Credit4.
ABF portal founder Adam Tavener said: “It’s always nice to be recognised as the best of the business finance platforms. Having just passed the 30,000 visit mark it seems like business owners and their advisers think so too.”
