The financing from J.P. Morgan will extend YouLend’s origination volumes as it works to empower a rapidly increasing number of businesses across the EU and the UK with access to seamless embedded finance experiences.

Ahmed Bakkar, Executive Director in the Securitized Products Group at J.P. Morgan, said on the new transaction with YouLend, “We are pleased to establish this new financing facility with YouLend. Looking ahead to 2024 and beyond, we are excited about the prospects of enabling YouLend to expand its credit offerings to UK and European small businesses. With SMEs accounting for around 50% of UK GDP and serving as an engine of growth for the UK economy, we are delighted to provide this facility to YouLend, supporting the growth of the specialist lending sector and facilitating the availability of capital to creditworthy businesses.”

The deal follows a milestone recently announced by the company, as it celebrated the provision of 150,000 instances of funding to SMEs across the UK, EU, and the US, since its launch in 2015.
