The lender issued these loans between the 23rd March and 30th June for residential and commercial bridging finance.
One recent deal was £1.2m second-charge commercial bridging loan, to allow a client to complete on a share purchase for a new business and to restructure existing finance.
Due to having access to in-house credit lines and a team of experienced underwriters, MFS has remained open for business throughout the lockdown period.
The lender has also launched a new CRM system to streamline its internal processes, to ensure all queries from private clients and brokers can be addressed within hours of being received.
