The opportunity in growth SME lending for investors
UK growth SMEs represent 1⁄3 of the entire European market, with 70% of these businesses located outside of London. Yet despite this vibrant and growing segment, traditional UK lenders have retrenched in recent years, being unable to effectively serve the growing SME community.
At Growth Lending, we believe that this retrenchment and the consequent widening funding gap, gives investors the opportunity to support growth, jobs and innovation across the UK and further afield, while generating stable and outsized returns compared to other segments of private debt.
