Lloyds Banking Group vows to bolster SME lending by £1bn in 2014
Lloyds, one of the UK’s largest banking groups, has pledged to increase SME lending by an impressive £1bn over the course of 2014, a business media report has very recently revealed.
The lender will enable senior local managers the discretion to authorise up to £1m for those renewing loans, in addition to allowing £500,000 in discretionary new lending, while in the same time trying its best to boost trade finance lending by 25 per cent in a bid to help exporting businesses and help 100,000 startups get off the ground.
Tim Hinton, Lloyds’ MD for SME and mid-market banking, said: “We are now seeing the recovery gathering pace and there are more reasons for small and medium-sized enterprises to be optimistic and to start investing for growth.”
