365 Business Finance has seen off tough competition to secure places as a finalist in the Direct Lending Platform of the Year, Business Growth Enabler and Growth Finance Provider of the Year categories of the first-ever Growth Finance Awards!

Commenting on becoming a finalist in this prestigious awards event, 365 Business Finance Managing Director Andrew Raphaely said: "It's a real honour to be a finalist in all three of these competitive categories at these awards, and a testament to the hard work and commitment of the whole team here."
