FundingKnight is an established crowdlender, blending modern finance with traditional values. Run by a management team with a strong background in financial services, we launched our business in 2012.
We enable investors to lend directly to British businesses, at a rate that works for both. It?s a new way for businesses to have rapid access to flexible finance, and for investors to improve their potential returns on cash by assuming the risk of direct lending.
Crowdlending is a fast-moving industry ? and we?ve succeeded thanks to being highly innovative, responsive to trends and continually increasing our product diversity. In 2015, our growth is outperforming the sector as a whole.
Sophisticated technology is at the heart of the business. Our investment platform is precisely geared to the needs of investors, enabling them to automate auction bids, trade in a busy secondary loan market, and withdraw funds at a click.
We?re an intrinsically modern company that values building relationships with our communities.
What our investors and borrowers value most is the quality and personal nature of our service. Our team prides itself on meticulous attention to detail and we always go the extra mile to build and nurture relationships. Many of our business borrowers have successfully gone on to find additional loans with FundingKnight.
We believe crowdlending is changing the UK?s financial landscape for good, providing a better deal for borrowers and investors.

The Company Strategy is to become a leading alternative provider of SME finance and in the last year the Company has made significant strides to achieve this by completing a number of partnership transactions with lending platforms.
