LendInvest LSE Market Open

LendInvest, the UK’s leading asset manager for property finance, has received the highest possible rating and confirmation of a ‘stable outlook’ from European rating agency, ARC Ratings, for the eighth consecutive year.

ARC affirmed its SQ1 Servicer Quality Rating for LendInvest following a comprehensive review, noting the company’s strengthened financial performance, and technology driven infrastructure.

In particular, ARC highlighted the LendInvest Loan Engine’s benefit of ‘optimisation’ and ‘efficient allocation of mortgages’ across investment portfolios, and the ability of LendInvest’s Genesys technology to ‘create a seamless application process facilitating increased broker conversion and higher repeat rates.’

ARC Ratings is a regulated European credit rating agency registered with the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA).

Its rating is based on a number of key factors including corporate governance, internal controls, due diligence, data disaster mitigation and the financial health of the company.

Rod Lockhart, Chief Executive Officer of LendInvest, commented:

“It’s been a turbulent few months for the economy as a whole, which is not something our industry is immune to.

This is why it’s brilliant to see LendInvest recognised yet again for its stability and success as a lender, receiving the highest possible rating for an eighth year running from ARC Ratings.

The ability to weather a crisis is crucial when we consider the wider macroeconomic landscape, and receiving this rating over the last couple of years has demonstrated LendInvest’s sustainability as a business, which we attribute to both our expert team, stringent internal governance, resilient business model and proprietary technology platform.”
