Flexible funding solutions

The lnvestSure platform has an audience of the most active funders and investors in the UK, to provide competitive equity, mezz, bridging and stretch debt, which is matched automatically on our innovative portal.

We can select the types of funders who can see your opportunity and limit your project from over exposure or duplication of funders you may have already approached. Only the most appropriate lenders and investors will see your opportunity.

Supported process

We work closely with developers to present them and their schemes professionally, and find the best solutions on the market for their unique opportunities. We arrange and attend all funding meetings to ensure complete support and continuity.

We understand how stressful funding can be, and so we have designed our service to be as quick and efficient as possible whilst maintaining a quality supportive approach.

Up to 100% funding

We can raise up to 100% funding for talented, experienced developers who may have capital tied up on other sites. We understand the need to grow your business with limited capital and so we help find solutions to enable that growth if it is appropriate for our investors.

Because this is not a peer to peer platform, and we do not work with retail investors, only professional corporate investors will see your opportunity, which speeds up the process and limits your exposure to only those that understand risk.
