Allica Bank is profitable after two and a half years

Allica Bank, a UK lender focusing on small to medium sized businesses, has reached profitability.

This follows its milestone of having lent over £1bn in total to SMEs. 

It intends to reach £1bn of annual lending, having lent almost £80mn each month this quarter.
