Commercial Trust, the buy-to-let and commercial finance broker, has added Axis Bank to its panel of lenders – adding more complex buy-to-let choices for clients in London and the South East.
The capital and the South East saw the largest increase in supply of rented accommodation in the first quarter of 2016 – yet again highlighting the region’s continued reputation as a safe haven for capital, even in volatile times.
Andrew Turner, chief executive of Commercial Trust, believes that the buy-to-let market is changing and said: “Clients’ needs are becoming more complex and it is important that they have a wealth of specialist product options to ensure that they get the best return on their investment.
“Axis has quietly established itself over the past year as a credible player in the specialist market.
“Their goals are very much aligned with our own, and we are pleased to be able to broaden our offering of competitive, flexible finance for professional investors.”
Axis provides a comprehensive range of solutions to meet the needs of individual, limited company and ex-pat applicants. They provide funding for most property types, including HMOs and multi-unit properties – two growing areas of the market.
Andrew Ferguson, Axis Bank’s head of buy-to-let, said: “Commercial Trust has a good reputation and a growing team, and are highly experienced in dealing with our target clients.
“I am sure our personal and pragmatic approach to underwriting will help the Commercial Trust team. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with them and their clients.”
Launched in April 2014, Commercial Trust is already one of the largest commercial finance brokers in the UK.
