What is Alternative Finance?

The alternative finance market has made huge strides in recent years as businesses which have typically been starved of traditional bank lending, such as overdrafts and loans, have sought another route to raise finance.

The likes of crowdfunding and peer-to-peer finance, in particular, are increasing in profile and enjoying impressive growth, enabling businesses to secure funding from online investors through dedicated websites.
