A webinar about Funding Circle and peer-to-peer loans, hosted by Funding Options.
Peer-to-peer lending is set to increase fivefold in the next three years, according to a recent forecast from Ernst and Young.
It looks like more and more SMEs are turning to alternative finance products out of frustration with the banks.
Given the hype, you'd think that most businesses are aware of the options available, right? Wrong. According to a recent survey, only 29% of respondents even knew what peer-to-peer lending is.
If you've got questions about peer-to-peer, this is your chance to ask Funding Circle. The first site of its kind in the UK, Funding Circle was launched in August 2010 and has since facilitated over £164 million in loans to SMEs, providing flexible business loans up to £1 million.
We'll be answering questions on the basics, as well as the details: What is peer-to-peer lending? Who is Funding Circle? What types of finance are offered? How does it work? What are the risks?
We'll also look at how you can put together the best possible finance application, and we'll take questions on whether your business or your clients might qualify.
This is a special event webinar ran by Funding Options in conjunction with Funding Circle. The award-winning Funding Options team works with a range of lenders to provide free, no-obligation advice about the best finance for your business.
