Platform Black was crowned “Alternative Lender of the Year” at last night’s Credit Today Awards ceremony.

The leading invoice finance platform beat out some of the premier names in the Alternative Finance space en route to securing the award. Judges were smitten with the platform’s “solid blend of innovation and conventional growth”. Since launching in 2011, Platform Black has advanced around £60 million to British SMEs and is providing access to over £1 million a week in new finance.

Louise Beaumont, Co-Founder of the platform, commented:

“This is another fantastic accolade for the Platform Black team and we are delighted with the judges’ assessment.

“As Platform Black, and alternative finance in general, becomes increasingly mainstream, it is important for the market to recognize that new players like ourselves, that are innovating and delivering what customers want, aren’t asking customers to compromise on traditional service values, including accessibility, responsiveness and capacity to lend. This award is important recognition that we are getting the blend right and a major landmark in our journey to becoming a leading provider of cashflow finance to Britain’s SMEs.”

Congratulations to Platform Black.
