What We Focus On

We are connected to and source our opportunities through a network of borrowers who primarily focus on purchasing and adding buy-to-let properties in the Netherlands as part of their investment portfolio.

We provide interim or bridge finance to allow them the opportunity to close on the specific asset, while they seek longer term mortgage finance for the property.
