TAB was founded in early 2018 and has focused on originating and servicing unregulated bridging loans secured on a first and second charge basis against residential and commercial properties in the UK.
TAB has a best in class team. CEO Duncan Kreeger has overseen more than £2.5bn of new loans throughout his career and managed a loan book of over £400m by successfully co-founding, growing and selling another bridging lender.
To date, TAB has originated £130m of bridging loans. TAB has a solid reputation in the short term property finance market, underpinned by its simple and transparent lending strategy. The Company prides itself on having the ability to deliver quick yet bespoke finance, with initial terms provided shortly after an enquiry and decisions based on real-time changes within the property market.
Originations are driven through a growing network of brokers, as well as through the strong relationships TAB maintains with direct borrowers and introducers as a result of the senior management team’s extensive contacts in the sector.
