Our team

Our free business finance platform allows SME business owners, finance directors and their advisors to connect with 250+ lenders here in UK and across Europe.

We help SMEs and advisors save time by capturing finance requirements in one application that can be shared securely with our lender panel consisting of high street banks and alternative lenders. Our network of lenders includes high street banks as well as crowd funding platforms, trade finance houses, family offices, specialist funds, asset-backed lenders and grant providers.

Finpoint is rapidly evolving along two growth trajectories; firstly as an aggregator of available finance options for companies of all stages & sizes, and secondly in terms of geographical footprint, rolling out to customers across Europe.
