Is DiasporaFinance the right investment for me?

DiasporaFinance focuses solely on connecting UK small businesses to the financial system. Using AI and machine learning, it creates an accurate picture of asset risk to enable investors to tap into the highly-profitable SME segment, while enabling SMEs to access the right support at the right time, reducing the credit risk and making SME finance more feasible and affordable.

With products ranging from invoice factoring to contract finance, sophisticated algorithms connected to global databases identify the payment patterns of the debtor, as well as rates for both insuring and factoring invoices, enabling investors to identify opportunities within their risk appetite.

On the DiasporaFinance platform, investors, banks, trade finance funds, and high net worth individuals seeking to expose their capital to the generous returns of the trade finance space are matched with SMEs seeking finance to operate their business.

DiasporaFinance combines a traditional trade finance model with a technology platform and on-the-ground local knowledge, to facilitate social lending that grows by trustworthy referrals and allows investors to track their investments and returns in real time. Investors should note their capital is at risk, and that their investment is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
