LendInvest earns top credit rating

Marketplace mortgage financier LendInvest has been awarded the highest possible rating from a European credit agency for the second year running.

ARC Ratings gave LendInvest the SQ1 Servicer Quality rank following a comprehensive annual review of factors such as corporate governance, due diligence and financial health.

The firm claims to be the only marketplace lender to have achieved such a rating.

Christian Faes, Co-Founder and CEO of LendInvest, said: “Lending money is easy; lending it well requires discipline, focus and years of experience.

“It is hugely gratifying to receive a second top rating from ARC Ratings.

“It acknowledges the hard work we have put in to develop market-leading underwriting and servicing standards.”

Christian credited the rating to LendInvest’s “exceptional” underwriting and loan servicing infrastructure.

The rating also assessed originations, underwriting and service processes.

The firm became the first marketplace lender to receive a European rating from a credit rating agency in June 2015.

ARC Ratings praised LendInvest for establishing itself as the UK’s largest online property marketplace, hiring experienced staff members and investing heavily to remain at the forefront of fintech developments.

LendInvest recently appointed the former Executive Chairman of OneSavings Bank, Stephan Wilcke, as a senior adviser.
