The Route – Finance operates in a fairly niche position and focuses on ‘Special situations’ lending, where decisions need to be made swiftly with complete certainty of outcome. The Route works closely with a network of finance brokers and introducers throughout the United Kingdom and Europe in order to source these specific kinds of projects.


The Route believes in industry collaboration in support of a common goal: promoting the success of SMEs. We regularly receive enquiries that don’t suit our model, and we always try to pass these on to other platforms that are well-suited to handle their requirements. If you’d like to be a part of this collaboration, register as an introducer with The Route Finance today.


After registering as an introducer with The Route Finance, our Business Development Manager will give you a call to answer your questions and have an initial discussion. This is your dedicated contact at The Route, who will be on hand when you have a potential project, question, or other requirement.


You’ll also receive periodic updates with information regarding new product offerings and investment news. These are intended to help you engage with The Route Finance and keep you abreast of developments regarding The Private Debt Platform, and will not clog your inbox.
