Since the initial Seedrs investment round in March 2019, CapitalRise has grown very fast and continues to disrupt the prime property finance market, offering fast, flexible finance for borrowers and attractive 8-12% p.a. potential returns for investors seeking a place to invest their hard-earned funds.
CapitalRise has grown lending volumes by over 4x in the last 12 months. We continue to scale very fast and are already halfway towards completing our target of £100 million of gross lending, with growth in 2019 demonstrating our success and strong trajectory towards hitting this milestone.
Our lending track record remains spotless, with no losses or defaults, despite continued political uncertainty in the UK. Our loan book continues to grow and we screened over £1.9bn in loan enquiries over the last 6 months – a 30% increase on the 6 months prior.
