Funding Circle

The leading marketplace for business loans

Funding Circle is the world’s leading online marketplace for business loans, matching small businesses who want to borrow with investors who want to lend in the UK, the US, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain. Since launching in 2010, investors at Funding Circle - including 50.000 individuals, financial institutions and the UK Government - have now invested more than $2 billion in 15,000 businesses, and currently lend $150 million per month. Funding Circle was the first marketplace to announce a formal referral partnership with Santander, one of the UK’s leading high street banks, and has since announced a similar partnership with RBS. It has raised $273m in equity capital from the same investors that backed Facebook, Twitter, Airbnb and Wealthfront.
