What Is Alternative Business Lending?
Alternative business financing has become one of the most common ways for start ups and SMEs to fund growth during their formative, fledgling years.
With banks now more cautious than ever before when it comes to taking on new lending risks, businesses in need have instead taken advantage of the rise in alternative and independent lenders to satisfy their borrowing needs.
Alternative business funding is not only an umbrella term for the niche lenders within this sector, but also represents the alternative, innovative products which are available in the market including invoice financing, asset financing, merchant cash advances, trade finance and more.
Capitalise works with a range of specially selected alternative business lending experts with a proven track record in successfully funding businesses across multiple sectors.
At Capitalise, we work with specialist lenders who can not only provide you with the funds your business needs, but have a proven track record supporting similar businesses within your sector.

Why Use Alternative Business Lending?
Get a tailored financial solution from a lender who understands your industry.
Expert, Independent Underwriting
Alternative business financing tends to move away from the 'computer says no' attitude of mainstream lenders, offering greater flexibility when it comes to underwriting and assessing each case on its individual merits rather than a strict computer algorithm.
Innovative, Industry-Specific Products
Niche lenders will usually operate within a very specific field of alternative business lending, so rather than trying to offer a myriad of different products to every possible sector, they'll usually specialise with just a handful of products, carefully targeted at specific industries.
By working with a finance partner who has direct experience lending to businesses just like yours, you'll be able to create a borrowing solution that can help your business to grow without putting a strain on cash flow.
Who Is Alternative Business Lending For?
No matter what industry you work in, sourcing finance can be difficult during times of economic uncertainty. When traditional lending options become harder to find, alternative business financing can be an ideal solution.
These lenders are typically able to provide funding through privately invested capital or peer-to-peer lending. Both options will offer careful underwriting which takes into account the unique facets and projections of your business, however with peer-to-peer lending you'll be backed by a range of investors rather than a single entity.
You'll be able to access a huge range of customer support options before, during and after your financing has been accepted, plus many of these alternative providers allow you to manage your account online 24 hours a day.
