Managing DirectorLendInvest Capital
Rod is Managing Director of LendInvest Capital, the funds management division of LendInvest, the world's largest marketplace lender for real estate. LendInvest is bringing technology to the £1.2 trillion UK mortgage market--an entirely offline market. LendInvest spun out of Montello, an offline short-term mortgage lender, in 2013 to allow retail investors the opportunity to invest in a mortgage. Today LendInvest investors have lent over £640 million against over 2,300 properties making LendInvest one of the fastest-growing (and most profitable) marketplace platforms in the world. LendInvest Capital is a leading UK real estate fund manager (regulated by the FCA), offering two funds and managing a number of committed bank funding lines and managed accounts. The business has grown significantly over recent years and now has assets under management in excess of £300m, with investments in short-term real estate backed loans, joint ventures and co-investments. Before joining LendInvest in spring 2015, Rod was a Senior Director at CBRE in the capital advisory business.
