After the 2008 credit crunch, it was incredibly difficult to get finance. Even perfectly credit-worthy applicants were struggling to complete on financial transactions. Mainstream lenders simply couldn’t or didn’t want to help, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t a solution…
Driven by his desire to help, Andrew Jones founded Rapid Bridging as a trading style in 2011. The goal was to help people get their residential, development and commercial projects across the line. To provide a rapid and reliable service, that people could turn to when they needed help the most.
Over a decade later, and we can proudly say that Rapid Bridging has successfully provided over 1,000 customers with bridging finance.
Andrew's focus on building great relationships with clients is a principle he's passed on to his team. We'll treat your investment as if it were our own.
