Through our own experience in business we knew how difficult it was to raise working capital from traditional sources in the range of £100,000 to £15 million. We also recognised there was a huge pool of investors who had never had the opportunity to directly support UK business and who were earning little interest on their monies. We believed we could match the two if the right security was in place, the process was made easy and both parties felt they were able to work closely with us. Our vision became ArchOver, and in late 2014 we launched our platform.
Providing a personal service is at the heart of what we do.
What makes us different is our human-touch. There is always someone available to speak to. Whether you are a Borrower or a Lender, we want to listen and engage with you so we can be as helpful as possible.
Living the brand.
We continue to build our brand. Every day. As a team, and as a business. We are always looking for new ways to elevate awareness of our services, pushing forward into new target markets and developing new services to underpin our strategy for growth.
Any funding process that is sustainable needs to be thorough, thoroughness takes time.
While we focus on making the funding process shorter and simpler than others, we don’t cut corners. On average, from first contact to funding takes about six weeks - helping companies get on with the business of growing. We are committed to treating businesses and investors fairly. If a business has the assets to sustain borrowing, we want to give them the chance to complete the funding process in a timely manner. We also believe that investors should be able to secure favourable returns with a reasonable level of security.
We believe in transparency.
Our Borrowers are never left in the dark; and our Lenders have access to information allowing them to make an informed decision on which loans they want to invest in.
We are helpful, focused and flexible.
We are here to help you achieve your business or investment goals.
Today’s ArchOver has developed from these principles. We believe we’ve stayed true to these ideals, and we will continue to do so as our business and understanding of your needs grows. While technology sits at the core of what we do, we are a people business; we believe in building relationships with people and helping them to grow and realise their ambitions.
