Double award win for Octopus Property!

12 Jun 2018 By Octopus Real Estate

We had a massive night last week at the annual Bridging and Commercial Awards, the leading industry event for bridge lenders where we won 2 awards including the main award for Bridging Lender of the Year.

We also won Development Lender of the Year (which we won last year as well) and we were highly commended in both Service and Commercial.

These awards are recognition of the hard work and success of the whole team over the past 12 months, a period which has seen Octopus Property achieve a number of milestones, including passing £3bn of lending, launching a number of new products and significantly growing the talented team. The market opportunity for alternative lenders continues to increase, a result of the more traditional forms of funding being unable or unwilling to adapt to the increasingly diverse range of borrowers in the market.

Octopus has traditionally been known as a bridging lender, but over the last year we’ve launched a number of new products in the commercial and development space which significantly broaden our range and make us a specialist lender and a real alternative to the banks, both traditional and challenger. 

With our broad product range, our willingness to lend outside of London and the work we’re doing to maintain our speed as we grow, we’re providing a much better service to our customers and going from strength to strength.
