Information for Business Advisers

The funds supported by the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund are very keen to work alongside the banking, corporate finance and business adviser community to help you, help your clients.

If you are a business looking for business support – visit our Growth Hub page.

If your clients have a funding gap, The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund may be able to help them start up, scale up or stay ahead by providing commercial finance through the Microfinance, Debt Finance and Equity Finance funds which it supports.

Making Deals Happen

The funds supported by the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund will work with other lenders and investors to create financial packages to make deals happen. The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund is able to finance businesses in most manufacturing and service sectors which are based in or relocating to North West, Yorkshire, the Humber or Tees Valley. See all Funds Available here.

The focus is on small to medium sized businesses. An SME is a business employing fewer than 250 employees, with an annual turnover of less than 50m Euros or balance sheet net assets of less than 43m Euros. The business cannot be part of a larger group employing more than 249 employees and where the group owns at least a 25% share of the business. To be eligible for funding from the fund that NPIF supports, an SME must have a material part of its operations, staffing or trading based in the NPIF area (or plan to establish such a presence within 2 years.)

The aim is to nurture regional entrepreneurship by providing investment and support for SMEs between 2016 and 2021.
