Founded in 2009 by chief executive Danny Waters, 33, this Hertfordshire business is a broker for secured loans, bridging finance and commercial mortgages. In 2014, it used an investment from Livingbridge to fund the acquisition of the bridging lender West One Loans. Sales grew by a quarter to £39m in 2016 as the firm saw the value of its loan book increase by 44%. In February, private equity firm Exponent completed the acquisition of a majority stake in the group for an undisclosed sum. The additional funding is being used to increase its portfolio of lending products. Enra is one of the most profitable companies on our table.
