Esme Loans – which was launched by NatWest in 2017 – is led by the original founding team of Richard Kerton, Veronika Lovett and Lucy Hasson.
It offers UK SMEs a simplified, rapid and paperless end-to-end process with competitive rates for businesses looking to borrow up to £150,000.

“Through this strategic partnership, we are able to accelerate the growth of the portfolio while providing a wider range of financing options to small businesses across the UK.”
Matthew Potter, partner at Pollen Street Capital, added: “Pollen Street aims to partner with only the most innovative businesses, [which] target underserved market opportunities and [which] show the potential for robust and sustainable growth.
“We seek out management teams that have insight, passion and determination and we look forward to working together with Esme to achieve their goals.”
