BridgeCrowd have processed hundreds of loans and millions of pounds over the last 15 years and never lost any capital. They have developed extensive due diligence processes and procedures as well as paramount fraud prevention systems.

Their in house team of expert underwriters coupled with their exclusive products give them the competitive edge over high street alternatives. Because they are the lender, they can underwrite their own loans and as a result they are free from the restraints suffered by the major banks, which allows for a quick and simple turnaround.
