Folk2Folk wins industry award

Submitted by SkinnerV on

We’re very pleased to announce that Folk2Folk has finished off the year with an award win.  This week, we were named by industry leading publication AltFi News as the UK’s “Up and Coming P2P Platform for Business”. The award recognises platforms that have lent less than £500m to UK businesses.

Folk2Folk won the award based on our ability to drive innovation, deliver an excellent investor experience, and our significant growth over the past 12 months.

Our CEO Jane had this to say about winning the award: “Winning 'Up and Coming P2P Platform for Business' award from AltFi is proof that Folk2Folk is now the go-to platform for small and local businesses in the UK. We are very proud to enable local business to grow by accessing the right type of finance for them. I’d like t­­­o thank our clients for using Folk2Folk as well our team who continue to drive high standards in our service and products. As we grow and expand across the UK we are working hard to provide a real alternative to banks for business owners and investors by offering a personal approach."
