This company offers a range of specialist mortgages, including bridging loans and development finance. Founder and managing director Andrew Bloom, 39, started the London lender in 2004 with £50,000 of his own cash, working during evenings and weekends before leaving his job to run the business full-time in January 2005. The company was backed in 2010 by an investment of an undisclosed sum from the William Pears property group. It has applied for a banking licence and expects to launch Masthaven Bank next summer. Sales have grown to £10.3m this year.
