About Fitzrovia Finance

Fitzrovia Finance unlocks investment opportunities in property backed loans, previously available to institutional investors.

Led by a seasoned investment management team, Fitzrovia Finance is a specialized property lending marketplace.

Fitzrovia Finance was specifically created to unlock the secured property lending market and open it to the wider retail investment market. While there are many competitors that offer a similar proposition, our platform gives access to high quality lending opportunities thanks to a strong deal flow – the types of deals that retail investors would previously not have access to and that borrowers would only get from the traditional banking system.

Our story so far

The founding team decided to combine their expertise in this sector to the best technology to establish Fitzrovia Finance in order to unlock the top tier of the UK’s property lending opportunities for investors.

Backed by a highly qualified and specialist team with over 100 years’ combined experience in the secured property lending sector, as well as a parent company with an established track record in real estate, infrastructure and asset-backed investment, the Fitzrovia Finance platform offers investors access to its successful business model.

Alpha Real Capital

Fitzrovia Finance was created as the online, retail facing arm for property backed loans of its parent company Alpha Real Capital. Alpha Real Capital is a fund management group focused on real estate. Alpha Real Capital has in excess of £2 billion of assets under management and has lent more than £150m to property developers and property investors in the UK.

Alpha Real Capital operates in diversified investment markets across UK and EU, working with large institutional investors as well as wealth managers, family offices and private individuals.

We’re excited to bring our expertise to this market and offer the high quality investment opportunities and lending facilities we believe you deserve.
