Crowdestates was set up to help property developers get access to funding for their projects and to help savers get a better return on their money. Since the financial crisis, raising traditional finance from the banks has become harder and harder as can be seen from the explosive growth of peer to peer lending in the UK.
Crowdestates specialises in lending secured on property and we believe that investors can put their money to good use and help developers make great buildings. Our great team has over 50 years experience across property, banking and technology.
We’re based in London Bridge at our great new offices overlooking the Shard, so feel free to stop by for a cup of coffee or a chat or even to challenge us to a game of foosball.
