Access the right capital solution at the right time

Let us help you achieve your strategic ambitions

We will help you source the capital you need quickly, helping your business access large institutional investors committed to supporting SME growth. Our collaborative platform standardises and simplifies the loan application, ensuring a streamlined transaction process, and allowing us to focus on the core principle of lending – building a long-term relationship through understanding your business and its needs.

Unlocking capital for SMEs

For many SMEs, banks can no longer be relied on for accessing capital. In fact, 50% of loan applications by first time borrowers are declined by banks. We are here to fill that gap.

Fast, streamlined lending

Our platform allows for a much faster process than that of a traditional lender. You will get an indication of interest after 48 hours, facilitating a drawdown in as little as 4 weeks from initial application.

The right amount for the right term

We are able to source larger amounts than most alternative lenders. Our loans are typically structured for up to 7 years, giving you the flexibility you need to grow your business.

Improved collaboration

Our proprietary technology and dedicated interfaces allow for continuous dialogue between all parties, ensuring better collaboration and a smooth path to completion.

Confidentiality ensured

When applying for a loan, rest assured that your confidential business information will be treated as such and will never be shared with more than a handful of institutional investors.

Transparent process

Our transparent lending process greatly improves coordination and communication, ensuring a high level of visibility at every stage between business advisors, lenders and lawyers.

We can help a borrower raise non-bank financing, sometimes simply as a means of diversifying its sources of funding. A typical structure could be a working capital facility from their core relationship bank and additional long term strategic debt arranged by SME Capital.
