Funding Circle, the listed peer-to-peer lender, has reached a cumulative global lending milestone of over $10 billion.
The figure has been reached in part thanks to an active loan portfolio in the American market that has expanded to over $1 billion.
The cumulative total of $10 billion is more than double the $5 billion that the company was reporting just 19 months ago, reports AltFi.
Bernardo Martinez, Funding Circle's US Managing Director, states “We are incredibly proud that Funding Circle has become small business’ first choice for loans. We look forward to continuing to build on the strong foundations we have put in place to help many more businesses in the years ahead.”
