Our Investment Programme supports providers of all types of debt finance to smaller businesses in the UK. We are increasing and diversifying the supply of debt finance by working with new market entrants and supporting the growth of alternative lenders.
We support providers of debt finance to smaller businesses in the UK to promote volume and diversity of lending to SMEs by encouraging new entrants and supporting the growth of alternative lenders in the market. There are three areas of this market we support through our Investment Programme: Debt Funds, Structured Capital Solutions and FinTech.
Our Investment Programme is open to applicants that are best able to meet the following four primary objectives:
We focus our efforts on supporting established as well as emerging managers raising funds that lend to smaller, generally higher growth, companies with revenues of up to £100m
We are continuing to engage actively with market participants, seeking appropriate opportunities in the FinTech sector
