We are an innovative form of alternative finance and marketplace lender delivering secured financing and flexible funding to small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and high net worth individuals (HNWIs) while managing the associated risks for both borrowers and co-funders.
Sancus BMS Group Limited is part of GLI Finance, an AIM listed SME investment business with operations in the UK, Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man*.
For our Borrowers, Sancus offers a simple, bespoke, efficient alternative to traditional lenders with a range of short to long term funding options, depending on your operational or growth requirements. We only fund SMEs and do not provide consumer loans. Our starting level for supply chain financing is £250k and we have no upper limit to our funding, our largest loan to date being £17m.
For our Co-Funders, Sancus provides a range of risk and return profiles, throughout a number of jurisdictions and sectors. Our typical Co-Funders are institutions, fiduciaries, family offices, high net worth individuals and private clients who are seeking alternatives to the current low interest rates available.
