Aspen Bridging has recorded its strongest first calendar quarter performance to date, completing a record 59 loan advances totalling circa £40m.

From January to March 2022, the lender finalised deals ranging from the five largest which averaged £3m each, all the way through to its £200k minimum. The average facility size was in excess of £800k.

The fastest time-to-fund was just five days and over half of the deals completed within a month of initial submission.

The deals, which originated from 28 introducers, were written on competitive terms with flat rates as low as 0.6%, stepped rates of 0.39% and bridge-to-let term rates of 4.49% p/a.

In total 13% of advances were written at 80% LTV on Aspen’s new development exit and refurbishment offering for experienced developers.

A further 38% included either refurbishment or light development, many of which opted for the new Bridge-To-Let offering.

Loans were secured across a variety of properties from terraced, semi-detached and detached houses through to flats, semi-commercial premises, office buildings and warehouses.

Jack Coombs, pictured, Director, Aspen Bridging, said:

“So far 2022 has been excellent and has resulted in our best first calendar quarter performance since the company was incepted in 2017.

These numbers have been realised thanks to our hard-working team operating hand-in-hand with our great introducers and partners at Fieldfisher LLP, VAS Group & CVS.

It all points to our strong appetite to lend, and we intend to continue the rest of the year exactly as we have begun.”
