Highlights from 2016

As the new year approaches, we wanted to take a moment to share with you some of our highlights from an incredible 2016.

Together, you have now helped over 24,000 businesses access nearly £2.4 billion across the UK, US, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands. In the UK alone, you have lent £725 million to over 8,000 businesses in 2016.

We have connected with our colleagues from across the US and Europe to bring you this short video. You’ll be able to hear from members of the team, their personal highlights and some of the borrowers you may have lent to.


From everyone at Funding Circle, we would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and thank you for helping to build a better financial world.

Enjoy lending,

The Funding Circle team

  1. This all sounds great, and as a lender on FC for over 5 years I love hearing about the businesses that I have helped. But there are many essential features missing from the lenders’ side of the website (e.g. relating to multiple loans to the same company, or easier ways to navigate information on defaults and recoveries). There has been virtually no development or added features of the lenders’ side of the website over these 5 years. And still no Android app. It seems like you are totally ignoring the needs of investors in terms of giving them the full information they need. I hope 2017 will see some long overdue improvements to this side of the business.
