Sancus draws £17.5m from new Honeycomb facility

Sancus BMS Group has made its first significant drawdown of £17.5m of the platform’s new facility from the Honeycomb Investment Trust.

First reported last month, the provision of the £50m accordion and revolving credit facility is available to expand further the activities of Sancus’ property backed lending business.

Honeycomb, managed by Pollen Street Capital, which bought the UK challenger bank Shawbrook last year and merged with the investment manager of P2P Global Investments, MW Eaglewood (now PSC Eaglewood) supplied the funding line with a term of 3 years.

Andy Whelan, CEO of Sancus BMS said, “When we announced that HIT had provided a substantial funding line to Sancus I said that this would facilitate further expansion of our successful property-backed lending facilities; with this first, substantial, draw-down that process has successfully commenced.“
