Shawbrook strengthens commercial investment offering




Shawbrook Bank has enhanced its commercial investment proposition to increase support for owner-occupied trading businesses.

The bank — which has a dedicated commercial investment team specialising in complex transactions — has widened its criteria to cater for owner-occupied trading business customers where there is a lease in place between the operating and property companies.

Under the new criteria, the lender can offer facilities between £300,000 and £25m at up to 75% LTV, with interest-only options available. 

Emma Cox, sales director at Shawbrook Bank (pictured above), said: “SMEs across the country were hit hard by the pandemic and understanding the vital role they play in our society and on our economy — we have a strong appetite to support them.  

“Our commercial investment offering and highly experienced team are well placed to serve this specialist and underserved market, and I’m delighted to announce these changes.”
