Small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) are important to the economy and to the growth of employment. A company's growth typically involves temporary shortages of working capital.
The current bank-based financing system is often focused on serving financial needs of larger companies. Increased regulation and tightening capital adequacy requirements force traditional banks increasingly more to avoid finding of SMEs.
A large number of growth SMEs are at risk of having shortages of funding in their most critical growth phase – they do not have fixed assets to be used as collateral and dilution through equity offering due to temporary financing needs is not feasible.
At the same time, investors in the stock market are looking for safe heaven and investors in the fixed income market are looking for cash yield in the current, low interest rate environment.
