Hope Capital has proudly marked 12 years in business in the specialist short-term lending market.

The lender was established in 2011 by CEO, Jonathan Sealey and Chairman, Steve Sealey and has grown significantly over the years, including doubling staff in the last three years.

Hope Capital is renowned for being a highly flexible lender and its broad product range, which the firm has developed and evolved over the last twelve years to meet the needs of a diverse range of borrowers.

Its product range is highly sought after in the market and caters for deals across residential, mixed-use, commercial and land deals.

The firm also offers refurbishment and development products, as well as specialised products which offer longer term options.

Having achieved various accomplishments over the years, Hope Capital was particularly proud of what it recently achieved, with the first half of 2023 being reported as its most successful period to date, with a series of impressive records reported.

During the first six months, year on year enquiries increased by 86%, applications were up by 101% and completions grew by 106%, compared to the same period last year.

Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, commented:

“Flexibility, adaptability and innovation has always been at the core of Hope Capital.

To have successfully assisted so many brokers and borrowers, is something I could only have wished to achieve when I devised Hope Capital back in 2011.

I’m extremely grateful to the brokers, borrowers and partners who have worked with us over the years and have helped us get to where we are today.

Each day, our goal is to exceed our clients’ expectations and I’m so pleased we have been able to deliver this on so many occasions.”

While I set up Hope Capital, it’s the team that really makes the business thrive. The whole team contributes, and everyone has a tremendous amount of accountability.

We would not be where we are today without our amazing team who I appreciate so much.”
