Information for Financial Intermediaries
SYIF were very keen to work alongside Financial Intermediaries to help you, help your clients.
Finance Yorkshire has now taken responsibility for providing gap finance in Yorkshire and the Humber and continues to work closely with intermediaries.
If clients had a funding gap, then they may have been eligible for a seedcorn, loan or equity package from South Yorkshire investment Fund.
Making Deals Happen
We worked with other lenders and investors to create financial packages to make deals happen. We were able to fund businesses in most manufacturing and service sectors which are based in or relocating to Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham or Sheffield.
Our focus was on small to medium sized businesses. An SME is a business employing less than 250 employees, with an annual turnover of less than 50m Euros (~£36m*) or have balance sheet net assets of less than 43m Euros (~£31m*). The business cannot be part of a larger group employing more than 250 employees where the group owns at least a 25% share of the business.
Our aim wass to finance ambitious entrepreneurs who can demonstrate their ability to grow their business beyond their current funding limits.
