Property Finance - Peer to Peer Lending & Equity Crowdfunding
Simple Crowdfunding is a property crowdfunding platform that connects Investors with property professionals looking to raise finance (Fundraisers). We offer both Peer to Peer Lending (loans) and Equity finance for projects in the UK. We first received authorisation in 2013 and have been growing ever since.
We work with highly engaged property developers and professionals who provide us with a supply of property opportunities to fund. Some of these hold £multi-million portfolios, who are happy to share their knowledge and expertise through our 'Learn Whilst Investing' program.
Qualified Investors have the opportunity to invest in property; from planning gain opportunities to large commercial to residential developments and new builds, making this marketplace more accessible to all.
Our team are experienced property and finance professionals, who enjoy what we do. We love to see property companies successfully grow and reach their property ambitions and investors build their own wealth portfolios online, in a simple, repeatable way.
