The new funding will enable the challenger bank to accelerate its current business strategy to be the UK’s premier ‘human digital’ bank and market leader in the SME lending space. The Tier 2 Capital facility will also support Cynergy Bank’s growth plans, which include delivering over £250m of new-to-bank lending across the SME and property sectors.

The £20 million subscription has been provided through the British Business Investments’ Investment Programme, which is designed to increase the supply and diversity of finance for smaller businesses by boosting the lending capacity of challenger banks and non-bank lenders.

Cynergy Bank’s future growth plans will be underpinned by the rollout of their ‘human digital’ model, combining tailored customer relationship management with the full digitisation of traditional banking products. This will provide an enhanced range of digitally enabled products and services that serves the blended financial needs of business owners, property entrepreneurs, and family businesses.

In 2022, Cynergy Bank achieved a profit before tax (PBT) growth of 66% to £50.5 million, with a 14% net lending growth bringing its total net lending book to £3.3 billion.

Nick Fahy, Chief Executive, Cynergy Bank, commented, “We are pleased to be working with British Business Investments, and this investment is a truly exciting milestone in our commitment to supporting the financial needs of SMEs and businesses in the UK. This additional funding will boost growth in our business and deliver our strategic objectives over coming years, while also significantly increasing our lending capabilities for SMEs, property entrepreneurs, and family businesses.”

Judith Hartley, CEO, of British Business Investments, said, “At British Business Investments, our mission is to increase the overall supply and diversity of finance for smaller businesses across the UK. This £20 million Tier 2 commitment to Cynergy Bank supports that mission and will help smaller businesses across the UK access the capital they need to grow.”
