Fleximize is a direct lender (not a broker) launched in 2014 with the aim of providing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with the sort of financing options usually reserved for larger companies. The Ipswich-based lender says that banks and other big financial institutions have made it much harder than it needs to be for companies to get working capital.

With penalty-free early repayments and top-ups plus a repayment holiday facility, Fleximize is all about – you guessed it – the flexibility. It lends to a variety of industries including retail, construction, manufacturing and property.

It offers secured and unsecured loans from £5,000 to £500,000, which are repayable over a period of 3 to 48 months, and funds can be deposited in as little as 24 hours.

More Info

Fleximize will lend up to a maximum of two months’ revenue, so if your typical monthly revenue is £10,000, it’ll be able to lend up to £20,000.

Interest rates are fixed for the duration of your repayment period. However, the rate you’re offered will depend on factors like the amount you apply for, the term of the loan, the performance of your business and its credit rating. This may differ from the advertised “representative APR”.

You’ll benefit from ongoing support from a dedicated relationship manager plus exclusive discounts on market-leading business tools from Fleximize’s network of B2B partners.

Ticking yet another flexibility box, Fleximize can also review your company for a lending top-up provided you’ve met your first three monthly repayments on time.

Fleximize’s secured loans

Below £250,000, Fleximize can often provide loans with just a personal guarantee, but for all loans over this figure, it’ll need security.
