The property finance lender has signalled its long term ambition by acquiring the specialist mezzanine finance lender.

The multi-million pound deal brings together two major lenders in the bridging and mezzanine finance sectors.
The collaboration proves a major expansion for Dragonfly Property Finance, whose eight specialist staff will now be joined by the highly experienced team of seven at Maslow Capital, effectively doubling its workforce.
As part of the deal, Dragonfly Property Finance will take over Maslow Capital’s multi-million pound loan book, though specialist mezzanine and development loans will continue to be offered through the Maslow Capital brand.
Jonathan Samuels, CEO of Dragonfly Property Finance, commented: “Maslow Capital are heavyweight players in the mezzanine loan sector. Their expertise and reputation will help us build on our existing strengths and accelerate our expansion into the mezzanine market.
“With our development and mezzanine operation now in safe hands, the Dragonfly team can continue to focus their energy on consolidating our position as the market’s leading provider of bridging, buy-to-let, second charge and HMO loans.”
Ellis Sher, director of Maslow Capital, added: “In just two years, Dragonfly has established a dominant position in the property finance sector and in a market that has seen most balance sheets diminish.
“Their mix of skills, origination capability and formidable funding is a true differentiator. We are very excited about combining our strengths and expanding the solutions we offer to professional property developers.”
Daniel Churchill, director of Commercial 1, remarked: “Having worked closely with Dragonfly since its inception, the innovation shown from this company is second to none. When it ventured into the development sector earlier this year, it was merely a natural progression.
“Maslow and Dragonfly are a perfect fit and their combined knowledge and skill-set in the development and mezzanine finance arena will add great value to this growing and increasingly important sector.”
