The team got from AIP to completion in 28 days. Given that every valuer in the UK seemed to be on holiday, this was amazing.

Quick decisions. And a broker-friendly process.


Brokers really matter to us

Our business is lending, and we only lend through brokers. So we’ve shaped the business to give intermediaries what they need:

  • A broker process that’s designed for brokers. Our team will get to know your name and your clients. And we know that brokers need a lender who can flex a bit to get the deal done.
  • We’re quick on our feet. We’re leaner and keener so you get decisions quickly. In under two hours for secured loans, and within 48 hours for commercial mortgages.
  • We use our knowledge and experience to assess loans. We use know-how and common sense judgement; we’re not bound by a computer scorecard. The team knows what brokers need to grow their business. 

Secured-loan brokers

We pretty much started the UK secured-loan industry. But we want to do deals, not rest on our laurels.


Commercial mortgage brokers

We come from a firm that changed the UK’s commercial mortgage industry. We like to help brokers grow their business.

Home improvement companies

We're the fastest-growing home-improvement finance company in the UK. Because we listened when you told us what you need.
