“With banks’ balance sheets constrained as a result of increasing regulatory capital requirements, Shard Credit Partners aims to fill the funding gap with its direct lending fund. This matches the income needs and longer term liability profiles of institutional investors such as insurance companies and pension funds with the funding requirements of the UK SME sector.

The Shard Credit Partners team boasts a professional track record stretching over 80 years of sourcing, originating, executing and then managing loans worth a combined total of £70 billion-equivalent across Europe and the US.

For qualifying SMEs, Shard Credit Partners plugs the funding gap which has opened up since the financial crisis. We provide as sole lender, senior secured unitranche loans of £5-25 million per borrower, with a flexible process designed to reach lending decisions quickly.”
