UK and US-based organisations in trans-atlantic partnership.

Funding Circle has joined forces with asset management firm Victory Park Capital in a deal intended to free up $420 million for small business loans.

The two organisations have collaborated in the past, but a statement released by both parties claims that this latest deal “significantly extends the existing relationship”.

Funding Circle has facilitated $850 million in loans to around 8,000 small businesses globally across the past 12 months. In the UK small business loans of £5,000 to £1 million are available.

Victory Park Capital was founded in 2007 and has its headquarters in Chicago. It focuses on mid-market businesses from a diverse range of industries.
