The alternative finance marketplace

What we do for investors

We provide factual analysis, real-time data and ratings which help investors to make informed decisions about their prospect investment. Whether that be a company, product or indeed the platform on which the investment opportunity is marketed.

Our ratings enable investors to see clear, timely and not misleading like for like comparisons all in one easy to access place. This gives the investor the benefit of a detailed insight which often extends beyond the level of their usual due diligence saving valuable time and cost.


What we do for entrepreneurs

Providing the entrepreneur with an objective fact-based assessment of their business sets a clear advantage over those non rated equity crowd funding pitches. Our fully comprehensive ratings encompass a detailed review of the Company’s product/service the management and financial model. They are offered free of charge and can be used as a highly effective marketing tool promoting investment interest in the business.

We understand that some companies may not achieve a high investment rating which is why we also recognise innovation, community, charity and environmentally friendly investments by awarding a Social Impact Rating (SIR) to each business we review. This really does highlight an often unexploited investment differentiator.


What we do for platforms

NextFin really is the compliance solution for alternative finance providers. By working with, and providing data to NextFin the platforms are complying with the FCA rules. Being completely transparent and allowing fair and not misleading comparisons to be made available on such key metrics as due diligence procedures, exits, money raised, interest and default rates.

Providing this independent clarity improves standards and builds trust in the marketplace.

We work with the platforms and offer our rating widgets without charge to show their performance to their investors. Highlighting successes and thus increasing brand awareness, driving additional traffic and conversion.
