Liberis wins Alternative Lender of the Year at the 2019 Credit Awards



Credit Awards 2019

Liberis is delighted to have won the Alternative Lender of the Year (SME category) at this year’s Credit Awards - for the second consecutive year too!

The awards celebrate excellence and achievement across the credit and financial services sector. Liberis’ success came through demonstrating how we have developed funding technology to provide SMEs with a fast, convenient and responsible service that enables small businesses to thrive.

The award also recognises our suite of new and refined products; including the Introductory Cash Advance, long-term and hassle-free overdraft facility Funding Line, revised intelligent pricing and the new Refinance Reward, where Liberis’ existing customers receive an incremental reduction on their price, each time they refinance.

Rob Straathof, CEO at Liberis, says the award is testament to the company’s consistent hard work and commitment: “We are genuinely passionate about helping SMEs grow and are extremely proud of our achievements, including that to date Liberis has enabled 82,000 UK jobs. Winning this award for the second year cements the fact that we are delivering on our goals and is a credit to the dedication of the team here at Liberis.”

A spokesperson for the awards says: “Liberis has brought a great new product to market that uses new technology to bridge the gap between needs and solutions of small businesses. They’ve had another strong year across partnerships, product range and performance. The judges felt refinancing rewards is a nice innovation, too.”

Liberis was recognised across a total of four award categories, with nominations in Excellence in Open Banking, Outstanding Conduct in Collections, and SME Lender of the Year.

The awards were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair, London on May 16th 2019.
