Waterfall Asset Management to fund £1 billion of SME loans through Funding Circle platform

7 December 2018

Funding Circle Holdings plc ("Funding Circle"), the leading small business loans platform in the UK, US, Germany and the Netherlands*, announces that Funding Circle UK and Waterfall Asset Management, LLC ("Waterfall"), a leading institutional asset manager focused on structured credit, have entered into a strategic partnership to support the growth of UK small businesses. Under the terms of the agreement, Waterfall will invest in £1 billion of loans originated through Funding Circle's UK platform over a two-year period. Waterfall's investment will be partially financed by Deutsche Bank.

This significant investment will support the growth of approximately 14,000 small businesses**, creating and sustaining thousands of new jobs across the UK***. Waterfall joins a diverse group of investors lending to small businesses through Funding Circle, including 85,000 individuals, the British Business Bank, the European Investment Bank and other financial institutions, including pension funds and insurance companies.

Today's announcement follows a record quarter for group originations, with Funding Circle facilitating £564 million to small businesses in the third quarter of the year across its four markets, including £377 million in the UK.

Samir Desai, Funding Circle co-founder and CEO, said: "We are increasingly seeing substantial commitments from investors looking to purchase loans in each of our geographies. Our business model has opened up small business lending as an asset class for the first time, allowing investors such as individuals, asset managers, insurers, and government entities to earn attractive, risk-adjusted returns by lending directly to businesses. We look forward to working closely with Waterfall and Deutsche Bank to support the growth of even more small businesses across the UK."

Henrik Malmer, Managing Director at Waterfall, said: "We are excited that our partnership with Funding Circle will enable us to continue investing in SME loans in the UK. This segment has been underserved by traditional lenders, and Funding Circle's platform and technology provides borrowers access to credit whilst allowing investors such as Waterfall to diversify their portfolios into an interesting and exciting asset class."
