Our Business Champion programme is a year old

Updated: 11 August 2020

Funding Circle Business Champion

At Funding Circle we’ve always valued our introducer community and the relationships we have with them. They are an integral part of our business and have played an important part in helping us get where we are today.

Now a year old, we created the Business Champion programme to give new opportunities and support to introducers who want to work closely with us. The programme is open to introducers of all shapes and sizes. We are looking for introducers that provide high quality business, show commitment to Funding Circle, provide great customer outcomes and are efficient to work with.

In return, we provide them with a unique offering that differs from anything else in the market. First and foremost, we provide a best-in-class service with faster decisions and personal support. By working closer together, we can help them say yes to more clients, more often.

What’s more, we also work with introducers to help grow their own business. By giving access to our marketing expertise and resources, we deliver campaigns and run analysis to attract and retain more clients.

Giving introducers the opportunity to grow and reach their full potential is at the heart of the Business Champion programme. Not only does it help us and our introducers, but benefits their clients and Funding Circle investors too.

2018 was an amazing year for our Business Champions, with record breaking quarters for lending and fantastic feedback on the new service. We’ve also continued to evolve the programme adding new benefits throughout the year.

Business Champions now receive:

  • Business Champion branding
  • £500,000 max loan size
  • Commission up to 6%
  • Funding Circle fees capped at 3%
  • Marketing support
  • Decision typically on the same day*

*When application is fully submitted with all documents before 1pm

Being a Business Champion is a mark of quality for introducers. It recognises their expertise and all the work they do to keep clients satisfied, as well as the quality of business they have provided to Funding Circle and investors.

We’re delighted with the success the programme has seen in its first year already, and we’ll keep forging stronger relationships that can help our introducers fly!
