PFC Finance is a financial broker that looks to pair a sole trader or SME seeking funding with a lender that is willing to forward these finances – but does it have good reviews?
PFC Finance has a smaller reach than some brokers, limited to around 60 partner lenders, but this could be considered an advantage – it may lead to connections with smaller businesses that likelier to consider your application on an individual basis, rather than relying on strict criteria.

Business eligibility criteria
PFC does not set criteria for borrowing – that is between you and the lender that PFC pairs you with. PFC Finance will ask some questions about our business and aim to connect you to an appropriate lender, but has no control over whether your application will be accepted.
Business finance alternatives
While other financial brokers, including ABC Finance, Aspire, and Rangwell are available, you may prefer to apply for funding directly through a specialist business lender, thus cutting out the middleman.
PFC Finance is a member of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB), the largest trade body for commercial financial brokers in the UK.
