The continued increase of funding lines and product offerings has been fundamental in LDF’s success, providing customers with the tools they need to invest and grow. Additionally, the development of lendinghive, the first of its kind, 24-hr fully automated decision tool, also supports businesses with the facility to acquire finance online.
Peter comments: “Looking at the business now, it has come a long way in thirty years, and I’m really proud of the fact that despite our growth and evolution, we have managed to retain a commitment to delivering a speed of service and a level of customer satisfaction that we firmly believe sets us apart. This can be demonstrated in our present 4.9 / 5 star Feefo rating and a repeat business return rate in excess of 80%*.”
