MFS secures £200m funding line from institutional investor

Market Financial Solutions (MFS) has secured £200 million of additional institutional funding, which increases a currently deployed funding line and allows the business to expand its lending activities across both the bridging and buy-to-let (BTL) markets.

This is in addition to the numerous funding lines that the specialist lender has secured in 2022. These add significant capacity and funding diversification to support MFS’s continued growth.

MFS is focused on providing certainty in a turbulent market, ensuring it is in a position to work with the many brokers and borrowers who are seeking bridging finance and BTL mortgages at present.

With diversified, committed, and scalable funding lines, MFS is on track to grow its loan book to £1.1 billion in 2023. Large bridging loans and BTL mortgages continue to be two key product areas of growth.

Founded in 2006, London-based MFS is one of the UK’s leading bridging lenders by market share. In January 2022, it launched its BTL mortgage range to complement its bridging offering. Now, alongside its fast and flexible bridging loan products, MFS also offers BTL loans for both vanilla and large, complex deals.

With more than 80 employees spread across two offices, MFS has further expansion plans for both its bridging and BTL products. The strength of its funding, depth and expertise of its team, and quality of its processes mean the lender is geared up to deliver bespoke products on a large scale.

Paresh Raja, CEO of MFS, said: “No one needs to be told that the property market and lending sector are navigating some testing waters at present. For MFS, the strength and diversification of our funding is fundamental to the way we support brokers and borrowers – namely, it ensures we can offer assurances that we can handle large and complex cases, and, crucially, that we always commit to deals. When we say “yes”, we always mean “yes”, and that’s so important in the current climate.

“Support of existing and new investors underlines the quality and strength of MFS’s products and ways of working. Demand for specialist finance products is high right now as people seek the best option to combat the current macroeconomic trends – we are ideally placed to meet this demand and remain on track to achieve our target of growing our loan book to £1.1 billion in 2023.”
