The British Business Bank

Both CBILS and BBLS are managed by The British Business Bank.

The British Business Bank is 100% Government owned but independently managed. It brings expertise and Government money to the smaller business finance markets. They don't lend or invest directly, instead working with over 130 partners such as Skipton Business Finance. 

Businesses apply for finance through partners who, because they work with the BBB, can lend and invest more - especially to younger and faster growing companies.
