Ask Inclusive Finance

Who we are

The AskIf approach to finance is different and for good reason. We’ve put people at the heart of what we do to drive real change for ambitious small businesses.

We became frustrated by other lenders holding back the growth of small businesses due to inflexible rules and a focus on the past rather than on what’s ahead. Inclusivity is core to everything we do and we focus on the future potential of the businesses we support.

Who we fund

We believe people come first. Our technology and process unlocks funding where others cannot.

Too often credit-worthy businesses are failing to secure the funds they need to grow. Unlike mainstream lenders, the AskIf approach is not over-reliant on algorithm-driven thinking. We like to get to know our customers and to understand the needs of their business, this enables us to turn a no into a yes.

It is our mission to foster entrepreneurship and help grow the UK economy, we were in the first group of lenders accredited to deliver CBILS in March 2020, a clear testament to our role in helping UK SMEs when they need it most.
