Founded in 2000, Accredo provides business finance professionals with greater lending options for new starts, clients with difficult credit profiles and established businesses.
Our underwriting decisions are made by people, not computer programs, so we consider risk and security in the widest sense, seeing the true value of a borrower’s proposal. We work only with approved professional Introducers and crucially give brokers an extra option when regular avenues are closed to their clients. Every proposal is reviewed and underwritten by an experienced Accredo team member and, with no credit scoring or computer-generated decisions, each one has the maximum chance of resulting in a successful and acceptable offer.
Combined with our light-touch application process and quick decision-making, Accredo provides an excellent alternative for business-critical funding.
We go to market using a network of contracted brokers throughout the UK who truly understand their clients’ needs, which helps us to appreciate the true value of a borrower's proposal.
