How to Apply
Applications can be made at any time. Please contact the Investment Team or call us on 020 7925 0199 in the first instance before completing an application.
Generally, the AHF operates as a provider of short-term finance; our loans usually have a term no longer than 5 years.
We strongly advise you to discuss your project with us before applying to ensure that we can meet your needs.
Please see here for contact details of the Investment Team.
Decisions on all applications are made by the AHF on a quarterly basis, though a quicker turnaround can be negotiated in certain circumstances. Please contact the Investment Team to discuss deadlines for applications.
ALL INVESTMENT REQUESTS WILL FOCUS ON THE CHARACTER, SIGNIFICANCE, EXPERIENCE AND RELIABILITY OF THE APPLICANT.
THE PRIMARY CONSIDERATIONS ARE:
- the likelihood that the projected cash flow will be sufficient to repay the investment;
- that the project and enterprise produces or will produce demonstrable social benefits, especially as a direct result of AHF funding.
The Investment Team are happy to discuss with potential applicants the terms and conditions of the investment, including fees and the interest rate.
Generally there will be no penalty for early repayment of any of our investments
