Next level growth – it starts here
You have an established business. You have a clear vision for your next steps. Now you just need the capital to help you get there.
Fast and flexible funding for ambitious, growing businesses is our bread and butter.
We are excited by innovation and have the experience, knowledge and expertise to partner with fast-growth firms as they look to expand, scale, and develop.
How can we help you?
Access more capital, sooner
Fast-growing SMEs need funding that is the same scale as their ambitions.
Because we specialise in lending to SMEs we know that a fast decision is vital and significant capital is needed to access next-level growth.
Take things international
Business growth takes many forms and for you, that may mean international expansion.
Whether you have existing operations overseas, are considering your expansion strategy or are simply growing your base of global customers, we have products specifically tailored for international firms and those transacting business in multiple currencies.
Agile businesses move quickly and proactively, responding to changing market conditions and surpassing their competitors.
To do this, you need a funding partner that can be equally fast and agile, offering a variety of solutions to suit a variety of funding needs, that can be used interchangeably at each stage of the business lifecycle.
Unique challenges require unique solutions, so you need a lending partner that gets it: your sector, your proposition, your obstacles.
Our strong history of lending to tech-enabled SMEs means we work alongside you and provide our expertise on the most efficient way to realise your goals.
Join SME excellence
Our preference for exceptional, innovative and ambitious businesses is no exaggeration.
We are very proud of our portfolio – it is testament to the next-level growth businesses can achieve when they have the right funding support in place.
Become a part of that.
