Funding Circle announces broker roadshows

The seminars will take place across the UK and will help both brokers who are yet to try Funding Circle and those that have already used the platform, to gain a better understanding of peer-to-peer lending.

The seminars will take place throughout March in five locations across the country, including Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds and London.

As well as introductory sessions on peer-to-peer lending and the process of listing a business loan on the Funding Circle marketplace, there will also be a number of break off sessions which will take a closer look at the credit decision process and how best to market the funding opportunity to their clients.

Laura McMullen, business development firector at Funding Circle, said: "Brokers continue to be instrumental in our growth so we wanted to run a series of detailed and informative introducer seminars with the aim of improving awareness and understanding of the peer-to-peer lending process.

“The advantages of borrowing directly from thousands of British people via our platform include speed, efficiency and cost for both borrowers and introducers."
