What we do

We are a leading provider of property development finance, offering Mezzanine, Stretch Mezzanine and Equity funding.

Since our company’s inception in 2014, we have provided more than £170m of finance to over 50 projects within the UK with a total Gross Development Value (GDV) in excess of £1bn.

Our highly experienced team and our extensive knowledge in property development, development finance, portfolio management, and law, is here to support you throughout the life-cycle of the development.

Working with experienced developers, we finance a range of schemes including residential, mixed-use, student accommodation and commercial focusing on those with a high proportion of affordable price points.

We pride ourselves on transparent decision-making, consistent delivery and developing long-term relationships with like-minded developers and brokers.

Our lending process

Our Process

Rapid Decisions

Our lending process is designed to provide developers with quick decisions, with preliminary agreements usually made within 5 working days.

Because we’re property developers who have gone in to finance, rather than financiers who have gone into property, our team of experts have exceptional insight, enabling them to evaluate opportunities and make decisions very quickly.
