About Us

LendInvest (www.lendinvest.com) is the UK’s leading marketplace for property finance and one of the country’s largest non-bank mortgage lenders. Since launching in 2008, LendInvest has lent over £2.8 billion ($3.6 billion) and raised over £1.8 billion ($2.3 billion) of debt and equity from investors.
