How does ‘commercial bridging finance’ help brokers and their borrowers? Our team share their thoughts:

Martyn Balsom, Senior Credit Analyst, says: ‘’A commercial bridge loan is a type of short-term financing that’s used to fund an immediate opportunity. Unlike small-business loans, commercial bridge loans are specifically used to “bridge the gap” between your current need for capital and a more long-term financing solution.’’

Anna Bennett, Marketing Director, says: ‘’Catalyst’s Commercial Bridging product caters for borrowers with all types of commercial property, including vacant buildings. With loans up to £10m and competitive rates, this really is a helpful option for property investors and property developers.’’
