It also builds partnerships with the people you rely on most. When many banks and building societies are closing the doors on further lending to both companies and individuals, it is a true testament to our rigorous processes that they have chosen to extend our credit lines.

"We have been working with the banks in question for many years and are delighted that they recognise the long-term potential of this sector," Ryneveld van der Horst continued. "I've been delighted that our relationship with funding banks has remained comfortable, and the reason for this is the openness of our bridging process - from individual business plans to balance sheets. In the current financial climate it is vital for the industry as a whole to implement transparent processes - from funding banks to lenders and brokers."
