Ultimate Finance has been named SME Lender of the Year at the inaugural Yorkshire Financial Awards.
The award recognises SME funding partners that best meet the needs of the small business market, through a diverse and innovative product portfolio. In particular, Ultimate Finance’s ‘Good Funding’ ethos was cited as a key reason for the win, alongside its commitment to supporting its growing customer base.
Josh Levy, CEO of Ultimate Finance, said, “Last year was another record-breaking year for Ultimate Finance so it’s great to see this recognised by being named SME Lender of the Year at the first ever Yorkshire Financial Awards.
“Good funding is at the heart of everything we do and offering the financial support SMEs need to thrive is central to this. This endorsement is therefore testament to the team’s hard work over the past twelve months and the commitment we have to increasing the resilience of the UK’s ever-increasing SME market.”
Ultimate Finance is an independent alternative finance lender for the SME market and provided more than £1.4billion in funding to thousands of businesses across the length and breadth of the UK. It has enjoyed record-breaking growth for four consecutive years, continuing to increase its SME customer-base year on year.
