How We Work

We only want to offer our investors highly curated lending opportunities, with this in mind we have a stringent assessment process in place for our loans. Some of the core features we look at when accessing and approving a loan, are the following:

Security & Collateral

The quality of the underlying loans we make are enhanced by using tangible assets (usually property) as security. We work within strict parameters and a maximum LTV of 75%, with the majority of loans falling beneath that threshold.

Short - Medium Term Maturity

The loans we make typically range from 6 to 24 months. Short-medium term financing is naturally self-liquidating, as there are multiple take-outs due to the variation of underlying loan terms. This ensures loan capital is regularly returned to investors.

Exit

We prefer to lend to borrowers that have a clearly defined exit strategy. This allows us to control cashflow and manage repayment expectations as well as assess the credit risk of each borrower.
