Peter Alderson HeadshotWe are delighted to announce that LDF’s Managing Director, Peter Alderson has been recognised in this year’s Finance Monthly CEO Awards as a leading light in the industry.  

The awards held annually celebrate CEOs, from across the globe, for their success, innovation and strategic vision. Each CEO is identified for being instrumental in achieving their companies’ desired aims and driving their businesses forward.”

Over the last 30 years’, LDF has grown significantly to become the largest Independent provider of finance to UK SMEs. In 2015, LDF acquired Scottish broker, First Independent Finance, aiming to provide £400m in finance annually, to both the corporate and professions sectors.

Additionally, the development of lendinghive, the first of its kind, 24-hr fully automated decision tool, also supports businesses with the facility to acquire finance online. 

Peter comments: “Looking at the business now, it has come a long way in thirty years, and I’m really proud of the fact that despite our growth and evolution, we have managed to retain a commitment to delivering a speed of service and a level of customer satisfaction that we firmly believe sets us apart. This can be demonstrated in our present 4.9 / 5 star Feefo rating and a repeat business return rate in excess of 80%*.”

Finance Monthly, Editor-in-chief, Mark Palmer commented: “It is vital for every business striving for success to have a leader whose diligence, innovative thinking and ingenuity inspire their team to demonstrate the same qualities and achieve excellence.”

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. White Oak UK were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
