At SWIG Finance, we take a personal approach to business lending.
We understand that access to finance is one of the biggest barriers facing SMEs and startups today.
We provide small business loans from £50,001 – £250,000 to businesses in the South West.
We aim to make finance accessible by providing small business loans to viable SMEs and startups in the South West region, which have the potential to grow and benefit the economy.
Our funds are designed for those who are unable to secure all their requirements from traditional sources – whether due to a lack of track record, security requirements which can’t be met, historic financial issues or simply not meeting conventional credit scoring methods.
We understand that bank lending isn’t the right fit for every business, and at SWIG Finance we can often lend when the bank can’t.
Who we are:
Our parent company, South West Investment Group, was established in 1989 to raise and provide gap finance for local businesses for the purpose of economic development.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise, we are passionate about bringing social and economic benefits to people, place and the business community in the South West.
Over the last decade, we have invested over £30m in nearly 2,500 businesses, creating and safeguarding 3,300 jobs and contributing £75m to the South West economy.
