European expansion

Every European market has seen deal activity grow over the past two years.

European deal activity over the past two years has seen healthy growth, particularly outside of its three main markets.

Data from Deloitte’s latest Alternative Lender Deal Tracker shows how lending activity in the European mid-market has developed, with all parts of Europe seeing increasing deal activity since the beginning of 2016.

UK deals have stormed ahead with 38 recorded by Deloitte in each of Q3 and Q4 2017, up from just 17 in Q1 2016.

Germany and France have also seen overall deal numbers grow, but the Rest of Europe category has expanded considerably, peaking at 32 deals in Q3 2017.
