The SBCI started lending in 2015 and after four and a half years in operation, it has committed €1.5 billion in lending and risk-sharing facilities. These have enabled lending of in excess of €1 billion to over 26,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The tender states that as the 4th anniversary of the SBCI has now passed, "it is considered timely and opportune to engage a third-party to undertake a review of the SBCI".

An NTMA spokesman said yesterday that the review's purpose is to inform the SBCI's future strategy for funding and product development in a rapidly-changing market.
