Peer-to-peer lending platform Funding Circle Holdings PLC (LON:FCH) has trimmed the price range for its upcoming initial public offering, according to reports.

Citing book-runners involved with the float, City AM said the range has now been tightened to 440p-460p a share.

That will value Funding Circle, which matches entrepreneurs and small companies with investors providing flexible financing, at closer to £1.5bn, despite having never turned a profit.

The company has previously said that it hopes to raise £300mln from joining the London Stock Exchange, money which it will use to strengthen its balance sheet to help it take advantage of opportunities in existing and new geographies and to raise brand awareness through marketing.
