CrowdProperty has only approved 2.7 per cent of applications for property finance made to the peer-to-peer lending platform - Peer-2-Peer Finance News, 5 February 2020:

Chief executive Mike Bristow said the Birmingham-based firm has considered around £2.2bn of deals but only lent around £60m.

He said having such a large sample under consideration provides more data to learn, compare and contrast in order to make “superior decisions”.

Bristow said this makes using a professional to source properties better than doing it yourself.

“You need a brand that attracts strong deal flow,” he wrote in a LinkedIn post.

“That is what we have done uniquely – building a direct-to-developer brand that attracts billions of pounds of applications.

“We’ve seen £2bn of applications and funded just under £60m.

“That’s selective, plus we’re currently reviewing over £150m per month of directly originated applications, giving us more and more data every month to ensure that we are selecting the very best projects for the platform.

“This creates a virtuous circle, as a bigger universe of projects from which to originate provides more data to base our selection decisions on, which therefore have a higher probability of success.

“CrowdProperty consequently has a 100% capital and interest payback track record. That, in turn, means that more people want to bring us their projects. And so it goes – onwards and upwards.”
