Fleximize, Suffolk’s fastest-growing fintech company, claimed the title of ‘Best Business Finance Provider’ at the 2020 British Bank Awards for the second time.
This year’s British Bank Awards ceremony took place on Thursday 12th March at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. The awards are run by Smart Money People, the UK’s review and insight platform for financial services, and are considered the most widely-reported banking awards in the UK.
Voted for by customers, the awards highlight the UK’s most successful finance brands, products and innovations, with the aim of increasing trust and transparency in financial services. In particular, the ‘Best Business Finance Provider’ award shines a light on the banks and alternative finance providers who are going above and beyond to support UK business owners, and whose overall offering is best aligned with the ever-changing needs of UK SMEs.
Alternative finance provider Fleximize was named the winner in this category for the second time since 2018. The Ipswich-based lender has a strong customer-driven ethos and has rolled out several initiatives and product updates over the years in response to customer feedback to ensure that UK business owners have access to the support they need to grow and thrive.
In particular, the lender has focused efforts on ensuring it provides support to local businesses around East Anglia through a variety of initiatives, something that will continue in 2020 with upcoming local workshops and a roster of events that focus on growing a successful business.
The lender has also been widely recognised for its innovative LendTech; ranking 39 in the Sunday Times’ Tech Track 100 League Table in September 2019 and making the 2020 Tech East 100 shortlist.
Peter Tuvey, Co-Founder and CEO of Fleximize, said: “Being crowned the UK’s Best Business Finance Provider for the second time means a great deal to us at Fleximize. Since our launch in 2014, we’ve always worked hard to ensure that our customers’ needs are at the very centre of our overall offering. This award validates all of the work we put into our products and processes to ensure we can continue to support the UK’s thriving community of business owners.”
