The Enterprise Finance Guarantee (EFG) is a government lending initiative for small businesses with viable business proposals that lack security for conventional lending.
Alison Rose, CEO Commercial and Private Banking said, “EFG is a hugely important scheme that has helped many businesses continue to trade today. This is why it is so important that our staff adhere to the highest standards to ensure that customers fully understand the features of the product. I am not satisfied that we have met those standards in all cases. Following discussions with the BBB, we have taken action to put this right. We have now made sure that EFG loans will always be given appropriately. We are implementing a thorough and proactive review of affected, and potentially affected, customers. Any customers that have been affected will be contacted directly by the bank to ensure they are put back in the position they believed they would have been in.”
