Balancing a foreign national’s financing priorities

Our ability to overcome difficult backgrounds extends to those with overseas origins. A foreign national investor recently turned to us to raise funds. While we had thorough details on how our finance would be used, we had to address the client’s complicated payment history.

As a result of previous payment issues, the client was under pressure to act quickly, and find a solution. Whilst this would have de-railed their plans on the high-street, we like to look for solutions, rather than reasons to say no.

Our underwriter got to work, looking at the borrower’s background and seeing what could be done to make it work.

We don’t reject risk outright, we adapt to it

The assigned underwriter took an existing property held by the borrower to secure the loan. Given the security property held a lot of potential, this balanced the associated risks of their adverse credit history.

The exit strategy is always an important part of any deal, and in this case there were a couple options open to the borrower which we knew were solid plans, regardless of which path they decided to take.

With all the information at our disposal adequately checked, verified and in order, we were happy to proceed and provide the finance the borrower needed to continue with their business and property plans.

Remaining flexible to a range of overseas setups

Historical missed payments, cashflow concerns, and perceived overseas complications can all prevent an investment from progressing on the high street. If you add tightening lending from mainstream lenders into the mix, it makes the current market very difficult for foreign investors to operate in.

But, we design our products with these complications in mind. All our niche loans are available to property investors from anywhere in the world, barring sanctioned countries.

We can also adapt to a range of complicated structures, all the way from offshore companies based in Hong Kong, through to Irish trusts.
