Clearpath Finance and Atom bank have provided around £1.2m of new business loans to Northern Irish SMEs in the first 12 months of their partnership.
The Northern Irish lending platform – which has over 50 different lenders committed to its platform – worked in alliance with the digital challenger bank to provide loans to a number of businesses across the region.
Commenting on the announcement, Conor Devine, director at Clearpath Finance (pictured above, left), said that the relationship it had developed with Atom bank over the last 12 months continued to grow stronger.
“To date and together we have delivered close to £1.2m of new capital to our economy and have committed in 2018 another £3.4m of funding, which is great news for our clients and Atom bank.”
Liam Brodie, national account manager at Atom bank, added: “We have been working with the team at Clearpath Finance now for just over 12 months and are delighted by the fact we have been able to deliver substantial funding to the local business community through [its] platform.
“We look forward to investing more funding into the economy and building the relationship with Clearpath, both in NI and throughout the rest of the UK.”
To date, Clearpath Finance has provided £30m of new loans to businesses across Ireland (Northern and the Republic) and the UK.
