Lauren Welch

My name is Lauren Welch, Vice President and Senior Loan Consultant at ARF Financial. I bring over 15 years experience in banking and finance to the company and I am dedicated to helping my clients get the working capital they need to help grow their business. My professionalism along with a pragmatic approach to my client’s needs are what really set me apart. I value the traditional concept that the strongest foundations in business are built on trust and integrity. I welcome the opportunity to discuss our unique loan products and look forward to providing a winning financial solution for you.

Business owners call us first because we are not a cash advance or factoring company. We have nothing to do with your credit card transactions. The loan you receive is tax deductible resulting in lower overall cost of funds. The payments you make are fixed and will not change during the term of the loan – as your revenue grows you keep more of it.

Membership Programs

The new Referral Partner Membership Program benefits you, the Referral Partner as much as it benefits ARF Financial. It is designed to represent our long term commitment to building connected, long-lasting beneficial relationships with our Referral Partners. See comparison chart below for the three tiers.

Membership has its Rewards

We are proud to offer two paid and one non-paid membership program for your consideration:

Associate CEO Circle – Paid Plan:

By joining this membership program you will receive the highest up-front and residual commissions, the highest level of Circle of Influence Network Fees and Overrides and the highest level of monthly leads and marketing. Learn more…

Founding Circle – Non-Paid Plan:

For too long referral partner programs focused on a simple exchange of a commission for a referral without regard to the long-term success of either the lender or the referral partner. Envision a new time, a new path forward, where a circle of membership benefits are so strong, so mutually beneficial, and the revenue opportunity so big, you simply can’t pass it up!

Continuous Revenue Stream

We will pay up to 6% referral fee, based upon the principal amount of the initial new merchant loan and the “cash out” portion of all additional advances, including line of credit draws, renewals, or re-financings that are made for a period of 3 years from the date of the initial loan. Here’s an example of the income opportunity:
