Alternative lenders: UK deal flow bounces back?

The Deloitte Alternative Lender Deal Tracker now covers 55 leading Alternative Lenders, with whom we track primary mid-market deals across Europe.

The fourteenth issue covers data for the fourth quarter of 2016 that closed with 68 deals completing, representing a 2% increase in deal flow on a last 12 months basis in comparison with the previous year.

Key Highlights

  • The number of deals covered has increased to 925 transactions over the past 17 quarters
  • This issue covers data for the fourth quarter of 2016 that closed with 68 Alternative Lender deals representing a 2% increase in deal flow on a last 12 months basis in comparison with the previous year
  • The UK deal count increased by 48% in Q4 2016 compared to the previous quarter but it remains to be seen whether this bounce-back sustains throughout the year
  • Ireland has also seen a steady increase in deal flow over the past 17 quarters, as with the UK statistics it is uncertain as to whether this upward trend continues into 2017
