CEG has successfully assisted the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI) in setting up its Future Growth Loan Scheme.
This scheme provides loans to Irish SMEs and small Midcaps, for a term of 8-10 years. CEG provided the SBCI with an independent benchmarking report on the cost of borrowing for this scheme. This benchmarking report ensured that the SBCI was compliant with State Aid regulations. After the SBCI have successfully found lending partners at the benchmarked rate, the scheme is open for applicants. More information on the scheme can be found here.
