Description

Touted as a ‘revolutionary step in property fundraising’ at its launch in 2013, LendInvest has already won over ten per cent share of the short-term mortgage market. It has turned a profit four times in its four years of trading (most recently of £2.6 million in 2017), and is the only online lender to have been rated three times by a regulated European credit rating agency.

Claiming to be the first firm to allow retail investors to invest in property loans alongside HNW and institutional investors, it was spun out of bridging lender Montello Capital, led by founders Christian Faes and Ian Thomas. In August 2017, the firm successfully raised a £50 million listed retail bond on the LSE: a claimed first for a UK alternative finance business.
