About us

Supporting our clients since 2008.


Award-winning loans, made to measure.

LendInvest is the UK’s leading online lender for short-term property finance. Our story began in 2008 when our co-founders, Christian Faes and Ian Thomas, launched Montello Bridging Finance to fill a critical funding gap for property investors and developers. Montello soon became one of the UK’s most active short-term finance lenders and was renamed LendInvest in 2013.

LendInvest aims to bring greater speed, efficiency and transparency to the property finance market. We have originated almost £1 billion of bridging and development loans for landlords, investors and developers to buy, build or renovate almost 3,000 homes across the UK.

LendInvest has operations in London, Greater Manchester and Scotland.
