Crowd Funding (Peer to Peer Loans) for businesses in Milton Keynes
Business Finance Services Ltd (BFS) has been helping businesses in Milton Keynes to grow and thrive for more than 14 years. In that time we have seen a great deal of change both in terms of the range of Lenders and their attitudes towards Lending. When we first started the majority of Loans came from what can be called the more ‘traditional’ sources i.e. The Banks, Factoring Companies and Bridging and Mortgage Lenders.
Then came ‘The Crash’ of 2008 as a result of which many things changed, not least of which was that the main lending Banks had one heck of a fright and immediately started being much more cautious about their Lending criteria for SME’s. The result has been the rise of what is now commonly referred to as sources of ‘Alternative Finance’. These comprise Lenders of many different types including private individuals and syndicates, VC’s and even Fund Managers. Not only are the sources of this Alternative Finance varied but so are the types of Funding on offer.
Prominent among these is what is generally called Peer-to-Peer or Crowd Funding. At BFS we work with a selection of what we consider to be the best of these. This enables us to offer our clients what is effectively a Tailor-made solution to their funding needs. So if you are a Milton Keynes based business seeking a commercial Loan we will have at least one Crowd Funding Platform that can meet your needs. If, on the other hand, you are looking for funding in return for an equity share then we have others who will suit your purpose. We even have specialist Platforms who can provide ‘Single Invoice Discounting’ for those who have an urgent need for short term funding but do not want to enter into a full Factoring contract.
In a world beset with financial difficulties finding new sources of finance for SME’s is what we do best. We work with many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) both in Milton Keynes, and around the UK, providing the support and advice they need either to get the business off the ground or to grow from strength to strength. Even if you have a strong business which provides valuable services, there may be times when you need additional finance to improve those services or to develop new markets.
