Fleximize wins Best Business Finance Provider award
Ipswich-based alternative provider of finance to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), Fleximize, has won ‘Best Business Finance Provider’ at the annual British Bank Awards 2018.
The company won the award for its attention to customer service quality and SME-focused initiatives. Fleximize, launched in early 2014, is a UK-based business lender and web platform.
The ‘Best Business Finance’ award shines a light on the banks and alternative lenders who have best addressed the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs. Fleximize recently closed a funding facility of £16.3m from Hadrian’s Wall Secured Investments and has lent over £60 million to SMEs in the UK since launching in 2014, with half of this lent in 2017. In the past year, the company has rolled out its secured product and substantially increased its lending capacity, as it looks to take its lending to SMEs past £100 million by 2020.
Peter Tuvey, co-founder and managing director of Fleximize, said: “We’ve had a fantastic start to 2018, and winning this award is testament to the hard work of the whole team. Our customers are the backbone of our success, and this award, voted for by them, has given us a huge amount of confidence for the future.”
The British Bank Awards took place on 1st March 2018 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London.
