    The SBCI’s goal is to ensure access to flexible funding for Irish SMEs by facilitating the provision of lending products with longer maturities and low interest rates, subject to credit approval. The SBCI’s funds are delivered to SMEs through bank and non bank lending institutions providing term lending and soon leasing and invoice discounting.

    The SBCI is set up to drive competition in the market for lending to SMEs and is looking for lending partners to work with in the Irish market whether they be existing participants or institutions looking to enter the market.

    The SBCI is a new part of the country’s financial architecture. By taking a fresh approach to funding SMEs in Ireland, the long-term potential of the sector to drive economic growth and job creation will be actively supported.
