Revolutionizing a broken system
When Funding Circle was founded, we could see that businesses weren’t being given the finance to grow, while investors were making poor returns. We had a simple idea — let them support each other.
By lending directly to businesses through Funding Circle, investors can now earn attractive returns to better provide for their future. Businesses get fast, easy access to funding to grow, create jobs, support local communities and drive the economy forward. We believe it’s better for everyone.

Lent to businesses globally
How it works
We connect creditworthy businesses looking for finance with organisations with money to lend. Our platform is more efficient and transparent than traditional lending, and we believe it’s a better system for everyone.
Institutional investors lend to hundreds of business looking to borrow through the Funding Circle platform.
We review applications and approve creditworthy businesses. We then pay out their loans and process repayments for investors.
Businesses make fixed monthly repayments with interest, which we distribute to all the investors who lent to them.
