This company’s online lending and investing platform has facilitated £1bn of property loans to help fund almost 4,000 homes since it started in 2012. It also claims to have 10% of the short-term mortgage market. Co-founders Christian Faes, 40, and Ian Thomas, 36, have raised £39m to date, including £17m last year from Atomico, the venture capital fund run by Skype co-founder Niklas Zennström. The company is now seeking to raise a further £50m with a bond offering. LendInvest’s sales — which represent loan interest, advisory fees and commission — grew to £22.1m this year.
