Barclays’ £500m Northern Powerhouse Fund Launch

Barclays have just launched a new £500m growth fund for small & medium-sized businesses across the North of England as a part of their commitment to support the Government’s Northern Powerhouse Initiative.

The new fund is available from Tuesday 3rd July and enables Barclays to offer the following business lending services for the first time:

  • Fee free lending up to £25,000
  • Up to £100,000 lending without the need for tangible security
  • Up to £250,000 overdraft without the need for property security for transport & logistics, business services, wholesalers & manufacturing companies
  • Cash flow funding for businesses to invest in acquisitions & organic business growth

This fund adds half a billion pounds of available funding and sits alongside the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) and the North East Fund – both of which can be combined with the Barclays Fund meaning even more growth support for the economy of the North.
