Why partner with Growth Lending?

We love supporting innovative, exciting and fast-growth SMEs and mid-market businesses, because we are a fast-growing SME ourselves. We understand the challenges these firms face and know the value in having a high-calibre, entrepreneurial and solution-driven team by your side, every step of the way.

How we support your business:

Our fast and flexible approach to funding is based on our team’s extensive combined experience working across multiple sectors and for both bank and non-bank lenders.

We understand the key challenges that growing businesses face, whether you are a technology business with high initial R&D outputs that needs to re-grasp control of your cash flow, a manufacturing company eager to make an acquisition to broaden your proposition, or FMCG firm that needs fast access to funds to expand into a new market and accelerate product development.

Every business has its unique challenges, but because all of our lending decisions are made by our expert team instead of an algorithm, we can offer tailored funding package that can flex to the unique intricacies of your business – and our growth mindset means that we can do this quickly.

Our culture

Our People team has worked closely with our organisational psychologist to capture Growth Lending’s culture, with our cultural qualities reflected in our lending approach and everything that we do.
