The alternative lender market is now worth several tens of billions of pounds in the UK and is now a permanent feature. However, unlike the mid-market, the lower mid-market is underdeveloped and underpenetrated.

Shard Credit Partners seeks to bring innovative loan structuring technology and expertise from the mid and large-cap financing markets, and deliver it to UK lower mid-market SMEs.

We offer strong risk-adjusted returns from a low volatility asset class with historically low default rates.


  • Shard Credit Partners Fund I launched in 2017
  • Invests in UK businesses with a track record of profitability and cash generation
  • Provides senior secured loans to ensure capital protection whilst generating attractive risk-adjusted returns
  • Targets borrowers with high revenue visibility in defensive and stable sectors
  • Flexible capital – each transaction is structured on a bespoke basis to ensure investment matches borrower risk profile and funding requirements
