Leading European debt purchaser Arrow Global now has £110 million ($178 million) of revolving credit facility with three lenders, significantly increasing its purchasing power and further strengthening its market position.
The announcement follows an agreement with GE Capital to supply an additional £30 million of revolving credit facility to the business, which provides additional funding to support future growth plans.
GE Capital joins an established funding consortium with RBS and West LB.

We are currently seeing growth in the market, and expect investment opportunities to continue to increase. The fact that the company has attracted multiple lenders – and is in advanced discussions with additional interested parties – is an endorsement of the strength of our business model, performance to date and exciting future prospects.”
