Andrew Raphaely, Managing Director at 365 finance, said, “Our latest regional data shows a significant increase in the number of SMEs in Scotland and the North East opting for funding from us. This really demonstrates our reach in terms of business customers across the UK; despite us being a London-based FinTech we have partnerships and customer relationship teams throughout the country.
