About Us

Avamore Capital is a private property lender focused on short term bridging and development loans in the UK. The company has been established as an investment vehicle of two family offices which specialise in providing lending solutions to all types of property entrepreneurs against residential, commercial properties, and land across the UK. The nature of company’s funding and the structure have allowed Avamore to be very flexible and quick when it comes to decision making which has set the company apart from many other alternative finance providers.

The shift from direct investment to lending happened naturally following our background in private equity, investment banking and real estate.

Our lending strategy is very much based on timing, an understanding of the underlying asset and individuals behind the project, very rigorous due diligence and the opportunity to be flexible due to the nature of our products – being a short-term lender allows us to make adequate corrections in our lending strategy and allow us to meet the borrowers’ needs accordingly.

We value our business long-term business relationships with our partners and we strongly believe our reputation is our most valuable asset

The company is funded by the family offices of two of the principals which gives us an incredible flexibility in terms of structuring and the ability to take a view on all different projects. We have the ability to provide much wider menu of opportunities to borrowers than most in the bridging and development space because we look at the opportunities on a risk adjusted basis, and because we have direct discretion over the families’ capital.

As we have no formal credit committee, we can rapidly agree terms and we can issue indicative term sheets as quickly as an hour after receiving a requirement.
