The Five Minute Interview with Paul Munford, CEO, Century Capital


Paul Munford

Century Capital provide fast, flexible and reliable short-term bridging finance. Their bridging loans are built around the specific needs of the client. Their clients range from private individuals to professional property investors.

As a traditional asset lender, Century Capital base their loan decisions on the open market value of the property rather than the credit profile of the client.

This equity-based approach to lending grants them a greater level of flexibility, meaning they are often able to lend where others cannot.
