What does 2021 hold for Hope Capital?
While the future remains unclear and despite the ongoing nature of the pandemic, Hope Capital has so far managed to support more clients than ever, whether assisting their business through difficult times or to seize new opportunities with the help of bridging finance. Ultimately, I can’t see the property market slowing down, even post 31-March, and while mainstream lenders remain slow and protracted, there’s a real need for bridging finance as a first-choice solution.
Therefore, we see our success continuing throughout 2021 and are committed to adapting to the changing needs of our customers, by continuing to push product innovation, develop processes and ensure Hope Capital delivers unrivalled borrowing solutions with exceptional service, no matter what is happening in the world. We are optimistic for 2021 and beyond and have our sights set on growing the loan book even further.
To ensure we achieve this, we will also be continuing to invest in talent as part of our ambitious expansion strategy, which will help us grow the business and guarantee we are best positioned to meet the diverse range of needs of brokers and their clients.
What would you recommend brokers and borrowers look out for when choosing a bridging lender in the coming months?
There is no doubt the bridging finance industry is going to face more challenges as the Covid-19 pandemic continues, which is why it is essential brokers and borrowers find a lender who can provide a transparent service and has expert knowledge of property and finance markets. It is essential any lender has a guaranteed source of funding, is clear when communicating the different options available to customers and is able to find a solution in a timely manner.
At Hope Capital, we continue to remain true to our core principles; delivering rapid short term bridging loans with total professionalism, honesty and transparency.
