We’re building a better financial world.
Funding Circle was created with a big idea: to revolutionize the outdated banking system and secure a better deal for everyone.
Thousands of loans later, we’ve helped businesses expand, investors prosper and the economy grow. And we’ve taken this progress global. Funding Circle is the world’s leading marketplace exclusively focused on small businesses - more than $500m (£300m) has been lent to 5,000 businesses. Today, businesses can borrow directly from a wide range of investors, including more than 30,000 people, the UK Government, local councils, a university and a number of financial organisations.
Since launching, Funding Circle has raised $123m in equity capital from the same investors that backed Facebook, Twitter, Skype and Betfair.

What the press say about Funding Circle
"The UK’s alternative finance industry has taken another step along the road to mainstream acceptance with the promise of a £40m investment from the British government. Funding Circle, one of the UK’s largest peer-to-peer platforms, will use the money to provide more loans to small and medium-sized businesses over the next year."
"Funding Circle, the British peer-to-peer internet lender, has appointed one of Wall Street’s most-experienced big hitters to its board as it takes aim at the US market. Robert K Steel, the chief executive of Perella Weinberg, was a deputy to former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. Funding Circle announced his appointment as it said it had raised $65m (£38m), the biggest investment to date in the UK’s fast-growing crowdfunding industry."
"Santander is to become the first high-street bank to refer its customers to an online peer-to-peer lender, in a sign that alternative finance providers are achieving mainstream acceptance."
