Teylor secures €275m funding from Barclays, M&G Investments, strengthening European SME financing


Zurich-based Teylor, a leading European small-to-medium enterprises (SME) lender, has successfully secured a significant financing agreement with Barclays, M&G Investments, and other undisclosed investors.

In a landmark transaction, Teylor attracted up to €275m in capital, which will significantly expand its capacity to provide quick and flexible access to financing for over 500 European SMEs. This sizeable financing deal highlights the strength and reliability of Teylor’s platform, team, and technology.

Teylor operates a unique FinTech platform, offering fast and flexible financing solutions to SME borrowers primarily in Germany. The firm has developed proprietary technology for deal origination, credit risk assessment, and private debt, enabling the processing of more than €3bn of SME debt over the past three years.

The fresh capital will enable Teylor to continue its rapid expansion, and meet the diverse financing needs of SMEs through its credit platform. The funding will provide an array of debt products that will serve to bolster the financial security and growth potential of SMEs across Europe.

This fundraising comes at a turbulent time in the macroeconomic landscape, and amid considerable uncertainty in capital markets. Yet, the success of this transaction attests to the robustness of the Teylor platform and its impressive market position.

Teylor head of private debt Huy Nguyen said, “Having Barclays and M&G Investments as strategic partners for Teylor brings our platform to the next level and proves Teylor’s leading market position. The capital enables us to provide flexible and long-term financing solutions to strong SMEs in a time where capital has become less accessible.”

Since its inception in 2018, Teylor has built an effective platform that not only provides quick and flexible financing to SMEs but also licenses its technology platform to over a dozen financial institutions throughout Europe.

Teylor CEO and founder Patrick Stäuble said, “SMEs, financial institutions and investors need a single platform that simplifies all credit processes. With the support of our investors, we will change how credit is provided in modern economies.”
