Making the most of your current loan book to keep finance flowing

Catering for larger non-bank lenders who want funding with certainty, Platform Lending enables you to make the most of your originations and raise additional funds against a future income stream generated from receivables in your loan book. This facility eases cashflow and releases capital quickly, which is ideal for lenders who want to grow their businesses.

  • Committed forward flow facility with purchase volumes ranging from £25m - £120m per annum
  • Purchase rate – 100% of the principal value of the loan to the underlying customer
  • Repayment terms – collections are managed by the lender and passed across to Shawbrook
  • Servicing fee – payable to the lender
  • Fee – agreed case by case as a % of the rate charged to the underlying customer
  • Leverage size of balance sheet and cost of funds to materially grow origination capacity

Key benefits of working with Shawbrook

  • Improved cashflow – Platform Lending takes the strain off cashflow, quickly releasing funds tied-up in loan receivables that can be used to grow the business
  • A new capital light income stream as you collect a fee on the origination activity without requiring the equity or debt capital to fund the loans
  • Secure and reliable – as these facilities are committed for a number of years, you have certainty in today`s uncertain economic environment
  • Scalability – you can leverage the size of Shawbrook’s balance sheet and cost of funds to materially grow your origination capacity. This enables lenders to enter markets that may be inaccessible if they needed to hold the loan on their balance sheet.
