Funding Circle is marking a record year for its partnerships team, having facilitated £150m of lending to date through the department and £65m during 2019.
The peer-to-peer lender has referral arrangements with banks such as Santander and business consultancy ActionCOACH. It also signed a deal with accountancy TaxAssist at the end of 2019.
Arrangements set up by the team have helped support more than 1,400 businesses.
The platform has recently boosted its partnerships team, which is now led by Fran Warrington as head of referral partnerships.
She is joined by partnerships manager Ronan Gallagher and partnership executives Angus Pollard and Emi Siemieniako.
“2019 was an amazing year for the partnerships team, they helped facilitate over £65m to more than 600 businesses,” Funding Circle said in a blog post on its website.
“They also onboarded numerous partners across the country, who are now able to offer their clients different options and a more enhanced service.
“As we move into 2020, Funding Circle recognise how integral for all our registered partners and their clients will be in enabling us to achieve our goals.
“We understand the importance you will play as we continue to build a better financial world and help more businesses go further.”
