As experienced property investors, Kuflink’s founders watched closely as the market became harder and harder to get into after the financial crash, and they got to thinking - how on earth are normal people supposed to manage their money efficiently?
It’s almost impossible to find a savings account that pays above inflation. As for stocks and shares, well, they’re just confusing and unpredictable. In fact, it’s a huge pain to find a decent return on your money anywhere, and borrowing money at a reasonable rate is just as difficult.
That’s where Kuflink comes in; our award-winning platform unites entrepreneurial borrowers with savvy lenders, providing a steady flow of accessible finance and better interest rates. Because getting more for your money really is that simple.
We live and breathe the Kuflink Culture and Values, with the core aim to connect people to financial freedom.
