LendInvest, the London based buy to let finance and bridging finance platform, has been recognised by the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) as the BTL Lender of the Year in the 2020 awards. This is the second year running the lender has been awarded top place in this category.
The NACFB is the UK’s largest independent trade body for commercial finance brokers. Due to the coronavirus, the awards were held virtually first for the first time, and the NACFB elected to merge both the NACFB Patron Awards and the Commercial Broker Awards. The ceremony took place on Thursday, 26th November.
Landbay, Shawbrook Bank, and Paragon Bank were among the nominees in the BTL Lender of the Year category. All award categories were based on NACFB Members’ votes and the feedback of a broker judging panel.
LendInvest remained open for business during both national lockdowns and launched desktop valuations for short term loans.
Andy Virgo, Sales Director for Buy-to-Let at LendInvest, said “It’s been my first year in charge of this product, and I’ve witnessed first hand how the hard work of the whole team coupled with this infrastructure allowed us to remain open for business throughout lockdown, meet growing demand, and best serve our landlords by consistently tailoring our product suite to their needs during this difficult time,” said Virgo. “I’m delighted to see the progress we’ve made so far, and this award is a testament to that. There’s still so much to do, and we’re excited to meet the challenge.”
