Online mortgage broker, Trussle has secured £13.6m in financing from a group of leading international investors led by Goldman Sachs Principal Strategic Investments and Propel Venture Partners in its Series B funding round.

Along with Goldman Sachs and San Francisco-based Propel (also investors in DocuSign), investors include Finch Capital (Zopa), which led Trussle’s Series A fundraising round, and Seedcamp (TransferWise, Revolut) which has backed the company since it was founded.

Ishaan Malhi, chief executive and founder of Trussle, said: “Since launching two years ago, we’ve worked tirelessly to create a better mortgage experience for consumers. One that respects their time, wallet and aspirations.

“Every year millions of existing and aspiring homeowners are failed by the industry’s shortcomings and we exist to fix that.

“The backing from two prolific and globally renowned FinTech investors recognises the brilliant progress we’ve made, but also the scale of our ambition.

“The funding will enable us to invest significantly in building our brand and our product but fundamentally, will accelerate us towards our vision of digitising the end-to-end journey to make home ownership more affordable and accessible to all.”

Philip Aldis, managing director at Goldman Sachs, said: “Trussle is at the forefront of revolutionising the UK mortgage market, making it more efficient and convenient for consumers to find the right mortgage. We look forward to supporting the company’s ambitious growth plans.”

Rohit Bodas, Propel partner, said: “Propel is excited to back Trussle in providing a transparent and streamlined mortgage process that ensures each borrower has the right product for their individual needs over the long term.”
