London-based investment firm Quilam Capital has secured a multi-million pound leverage facility from UK bank NatWest.
Founded in 2017 by Kieran McSweeney and Marc Sefton, Quilam specialises in supporting and investing in businesses in the speciality finance subsector.
Quilam’s securing of the leverage facility from Natwest follows the firm’s seventh investment, with its current portfolio and total investments in businesses across a range of sectors totalling nearly £40m.
Speaking about the new facility, Quilam co-founder and partner Kieran McSweeney commented: “The first eighteen months of the Quilam journey have proven very successful, and with a pipeline of strong investment opportunities the transaction and support of NatWest is very timely.”
Rob Lamont, director of NatWest’s structured finance team, added: “It is fantastic to be able to support Quilam as they continue to grow and develop their investment portfolio.
“They bring substantial support to the businesses they back, helping to develop the UK Speciality Finance marketplace”.
