BLME specialises in providing competitive financing solutions to the UK Mid-Market and particularly supports those companies that have links to the GCC region.

Our clients range from multinational corporations to family businesses generally earning a minimum operating profit of £1 million across a variety of business sectors. The facilities we offer typically range in size from £1 million - £20 million. The credit approval process is centralised in our London office and therefore we provide a swift responsive service.

We have particular expertise in following sectors: property, transportation, healthcare and energy and can offer companies a comprehensive package of facilities. Our Treasury Division provides deposit and foreign exchange products.

We are relationship focussed so the same team remains with the transaction from origination to repayment. Our banking services are organised into two departments:

  • Leasing solutions for the UK mid-market, including international facilities and wholesale finance

  • Trade Finance offerings inventory finance, structured trade transactions and letters of credit

BLME also offers commercial and residential Real Estate acquisition and finance through Wealth Management. 

 Our approach remains different from other banks:

  • Between our offices in London, Manchester and the GCC we are able to service regional clients and provide a responsive decision making process.
  • We have an efficient operational structure that provides responsive and effective support for our customers.
  • We are able to tailor our products and services due to the high level of expertise within our teams.
  • We are committed to understanding the challenges of the mid-market and as part of this commitment we commissions independent research on this sector every year.

We are actively seeking new business and have a growing number of customers from FTSE 250 companies to small privately owned businesses. Our aim remains to support, build relationships and provide proactive solutions to mid-sized companies particularly those with strong links to the GCC region.
