GLI Finance is a Guernsey-domiciled loan company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (ticker GLIF). The Company’s objective is to produce a stable and predictable dividend yield, with long term preservation of net asset value. This the Company aims to achieve through the provision of secured lending to small and medium sized companies with the view to exit the CLO business over time and focus on the provision of alternative finance to SME’s.
The Company Strategy is to become a leading alternative provider of SME finance and in the last year the Company has made significant strides to achieve this by completing a number of partnership transactions with lending platforms. The platforms which have been invested in vary by geography, industry, size of lending and by type of lending. These include Global trade Finance, UK SME Lending, Offshore Lending, UK invoice discounting, European invoice discounting, Global multi-asset crown funding and UK property-backed lending.
