IW Capital has served the growing arm of the UK private sector for the best part of the last decade, and is pleased to today announce its latest milestone of growth with the launch of its first secured Debt Fund. This first Fund, which will raise £4.5 million, will primarily target the high net-worth and family office market. Additionally, it will also be positioned to attract investment from the wider IFA and retail investment arena.
The Fund is to be the first in a series of diversified investment vehicles that IW Capital is planning to launch over the coming months, catalysing a conclusive £100m in growth finance for UK SMEs across 2018/19. This initiative is in direct response to the increased traction that its secured debt offering has gained in the market, and is further evidence of the support for UK SMEs for which IW Capital is already well known.
With the British Business Bank’s latest Small Business Markets Report recently highlighting a further retreat in institutional funding for growing businesses, leaving SMEs with a damning £2.3bn funding gap, the role of nimble, engaging and flexible solutions such as IW Capital in disintermediating SME lending has never been more important.
Having facilitated over £100m of SME investment over the last 7 years through its debt and equity models for innovative firms such as WeSwap, the Fund’s launch marks a definitive point in IW Capital’s journey, serving as testament to the firm’s significant expansion and growth in expertise.
