Welcome to fair finance

Lending Works isn’t like old fashioned finance companies. We're obsessively passionate about customer experience, using the latest technology and advanced data science to provide a world-class service to our customers.

Whether you're looking for a personal loan or retail finance at the point of sale, a business partner looking to integrate with our platform or a peer-to-peer investor looking for a better return on your money, we want your experience to be exceptional. Rather than focusing exclusively on profits, we focus on being fair, transparent and honest. These values not only make us proud of the way we treat our customers, but also help us to set a new standard in financial services.

Our story

Our story

Having observed the impact of the 'fair trade' movement, and how connecting people directly using smart technology had transformed other industries such as e-commerce and travel, co-founders Nick and Matt set out to bring this change to financial services. They quickly realised what was missing from most existing financial products - a fair deal for both sides. And so the idea for Lending Works was born.

Through many months of hard work, the Lending Works idea grew from a basic concept on the back of an envelope into a dynamic business, which launched in January 2014 from a little office in Farringdon, London. Since then, we've rapidly expanded our talented team, reached many thousands of customers and won countless customer service awards in the process. While the Lending Works team continues to grow, our focus has never shifted. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do.
