Timely and efficient access to finance, which truly fits in with the needs and demands of the lending business, can have a real impact on what success looks like and how quickly it can be achieved and maintained. In the current economic climate, the need for alternative sources of funding has become more important than ever. Among such alternative sources, wholesale funding holds a crucial position in a lender’s funding structure.

What is wholesale funding?

Wholesale funding is a method used by lending institutions to finance operations and manage risk. While helpful in many cases, it can be more expensive than traditional sources of funds and comes with unique risks and considerations.

There are a large range of different wholesale funding types available from specialist lenders willing to come in at different stages of a lending business’ cycle. Navigating a way through this needs a clear view of where a business is, and where it wants to get to. We are uniquely placed to help you on that journey.
