Lloyds Banking Group is delighted to be main sponsor of Top Track 250 from 2016.
At Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland, we are committed to helping businesses of all sizes and sectors, giving them the funding and support they need to fulfil their growth ambitions at home and abroad. We approve eight out of ten loan requests and our most senior managers can approve new lending up to £500,000 and renew existing facilities up to £1m, at their own discretion.
Since 2011, we have increased our net lending to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises by 31%, while the overall market has contracted by 11%. As part of our commitment to support British businesses, we aim to provide around £2 billion of net lending growth every year.
Lloyds Banking Group is also committed to; providing £650m in new funding support for the social housing sector , helping 5,000 clients to export for the first time, as part of our cumulative target of 25,000 by 2020 and training 1,000 manufacturing graduates, engineers and apprentices at the Lloyds Ban Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre by 2020 as part of our £1m per year investment.
This is part of our plan to help Britain prosper.
