Sancus (Guernsey) Limited is part of the Sancus BMS Group, an alternative financial services provider and marketplace lender specialising in the provision of short, medium and long-term financial solutions.
The Sancus Group delivers secured financing and working capital solutions to borrowers and attractive, risk-based returns to co-funders whilst managing the associated risks for both. Clients include small-medium enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals (HNWIs). Sancus underwrites each loan before syndicating out to its pool of co-funders, highlighting its confidence in the credit process and assisting the real economy in each jurisdiction.
The Group has offices in the UK, Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey, Gibraltar & the Isle of Man* and employs over 50 employees, supported by an experienced and well qualified board and management team, all of whom have been involved in the financial services sector for over 25 years.
Sancus launched in Jersey in 2013 as a marketplace lender, opening the Guernsey office in 2014. GLI Finance Limited, a specialist Guernsey-domiciled AIM listed alternative finance company acquired the Group later that year. The Sancus Group has since acquired working capital finance specialist Platform Black (now rebranded as Sancus Finance) and Funding Knight, the FCA authorised business marketplace lender.
The Group has provided in excess of £700m of funding to SMEs and entrepreneurs since it was launched.
The minimum loan participation is £250,000, with no upper limit, the largest loan to date being £17m.
