Combining Tide and Funding Options to better serve UK SMEs
Oliver Prill, chief executive officer of Tide, and Simon Cureton, Funding Options chief executive officer, tell Open Banking Expo’s Ellie Duncan about their plans to merge the two companies. It follows a recent announcement that Tide’s acquisition of Funding Options has been approved by the UK regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority. Simon reveals his vision for Tide’s existing credit intermediation business once it has merged with Funding Options, while Oliver explains why the UK marketplace for business finance is such a good fit for Tide and its one-platform ethos. They also discuss the environment for SME borrowing and the trends playing out.
