“Having established our name in the credit sectors over the past 15-years, we have bold plans to disrupt SME lending with our technology-based and data-driven proposition. Our aim is to ensure that better, faster and more innovative solutions are made available to SMEs, through a variety of channels, to help break down the barriers to sustainable business finance. Recent financings completed including powering partnerships in the revenue-based finance, embedded finance and blockchain sectors.

“Ultimately, SMEs are the lifeblood of the global economy, so improving access to finance for credible, established businesses is something we’re passionate about. Ion’s expertise will help us achieve this goal.”

Fratiloiu added: “I am really pleased to be joining the Channel team. They have immense experience in the SME finance space and are putting all the pieces in place to really transform how innovative businesses can access much-needed capital.
