About Us

Connecting Lenders and Borrowers to help each other.


Our Vision

Simple, to create a rewarding financial platform by providing opportunities for lenders to earn a great return and offering borrowers an alternative method of raising funds.

As traditional lending becomes more difficult for consumers and SME property professionals to access, the need for alternative financial solutions has never been greater.

Peer-to-Peer lending, through the development of online technology, has allowed borrowers to access alternative funding opportunities by introducing them directly to lenders who are seeking superior inflation-beating returns.

Connective Lending, through its founder and directors experiences of the lending and fintech sectors, has developed a platform that provides an alternative financial solution for borrowers and adverse risk-based solution for lenders.
