London’s leading specialists in short-term lending
Examples of how our loans have helped our clients.
Located in the heart of Mayfair, Century Capital is an established lender with a multitude of clients and brokers in London and the South East.
Our highly experienced team has a proven track record in arranging short-term finance for private individuals and professional property investors in rapid timescales, however complex or large the loan.
We pride ourselves on the way that we build our bridging loans around the specific needs of the client — each loan is tailor-made, not mass market.
Crucially, our loan decisions are based on the Open Market Value of a property. This equity- rather than debt-based approach to lending means we’ll often lend where other lenders will not.
In fact, we always go out of our way to do just that.
And it goes without saying that, with all our clients, absolute discretion is guaranteed.
