Alternative Finance: Is this AltFi's time to shine?
15 September, 2020Digital Webinar
In the latest webinar from our Centre for Digital Banking and Finance, we were joined by Alex Fenton, Group Chief Executive of Growth Lending, a platform made up of three brands: BOOST&Co, GapCap and KX Media Capital, which has lent more than £1bn to more than 500 SMEs and counting.
We asked Alex his views on the prospects for the AltFi sector and explore Growth Lending's experience of working with the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loans Scheme (CBILS). We discussed whether the UK Government has done enough to support small businesses through the disruption and whether the AltFi sector's vital role in doing so might be the catalyst for shifting the movement from the 'alternative' to the mainstream.
