Investec Corporate and Investment Banking (“Investec”) has helped Levantor Capital Limited (“Levantor”) to provide more than $500m in short term financing arrangements.
 
Investec is Mandated Lead Arranger (MLA) for Levantor, and has worked closely with the company since it launched in 2017.
 
Levantor is a London-based fintech company which provides short term working capital solutions to clients around the world. Levantor’s product set includes simple and flexible sales and distributor financing structures that seamlessly enable global corporates to grow their sales by extending payment terms to their buyers. Based in London, Levantor was founded by a team of Investment and Commercial bankers.

Levantor’s state of the art technology platform automates and simplifies financing for both borrowers and lenders, and provides access to a wide panel of investors across the world.  
 
Tim Young and Mike Humphreys, co-founders of Levantor, commented:
 
“Levantor Capital was founded on the premise that there was a significant demand for easy to access, flexible, short term working capital solutions that was not being met by the existing market. 
 
"The past 18 months have proven that premise was correct and Levantor and its funding book has grown rapidly since launch in 2017.  Investec has proven to be an excellent partner for us and have helped us to grow to the current milestone of US$500m in sales financed. 
 
"We look forward to continuing to grow our business with them and our banking syndicate during 2019 and beyond.”  

Investec’s Wesley Harfield commented:

“By collaborating with Levantor, we’ve helped them create an efficient and user-friendly funding arrangement that gives clients liquidity to enable their sales to grow.

"As the Mandated Lead Arranger, we are excited at the prospect of expanding the program. We already have a growing number of UK and European institutions participating; we believe that we have laid a solid foundation for future growth and look forward to continuing to work closely with Levantor."
