United Kingdom

The JRL Group Ltd.

In the first year that we took our business to the UK, the JRL Group was one of our first prospects. This was at a time that various players had withdrawn from the market and others were hesitant to originate new loans. The JRL Group had ambitious plans and was in need of finance to support it’s strategic agenda. We were asked to provide a facility for a substantial capital expenditure programme which would significantly enhance the Groups overall capability and efficiency.

Our solution

Owing to the poor state of the construction sector, it was a challenge for us to meet the JRL Group’s requirements. The Group’s continuing excellent performance and the fact that they operate mainly in London excited us. We also felt at home with their vision of the sector and the quality of their management. This prompted us to provide a facility that would help the Group to achieve their ambitions. At this point, we can say that both sides are very happy with the good relationship we have built.
