Funding Circle Receives New Investment from British Business Bank

British Business Bank will be increasing its investment through P2P lenders by adding another 40 million British pound ($49.71 million) investment at Funding Circle; the investment follows some skepticism from UK taxpayers about the Bank’s investment management of government funds; following the release of the Financial Conduct Authority’s interim update on crowdfunding, it was reported that the British Business Bank had 85 million British pounds ($105.64 million) invested in the P2P lending industry with 60 million British pounds ($74.57 million) invested at Funding Circle; in a statement on the new investment, Funding Circle says over 5 million British pounds ($6.21 million) in interest has been earned by Funding Circle on behalf of the UK taxpayer since March 2013.  Source
