Landbay has become one of the only mortgage lenders to ever make it into Tech Nation’s Future Fifty index of the UK’s most successful tech companies. It places Landbay firmly as one of the leading FinTech companies in the UK.
Tech Nation is the growth platform for top tech companies and their leaders. The Future Fifty programme enables a select number of the UK’s leading digital firms to come together and ‘become a UK powerhouse in the global tech economy’.
It means that Landbay will now have direct access to government through sessions with key officials and exclusive ministerial round tables. They will also take part in masterclass workshops led by global experts.
Tech Nation says that it “fuels the growth of game-changing founders, leaders and scaling companies so they can positively transform societies and economies”.
Landbay is planning to use its time as part of the Future Fifty to build on its firm foundations to grow further and become one of the leading buy-to-let lenders in the country. In the past 12 months Landbay has reached over a hundred employees, while it has past more than £0.5bn in lending. Landbay has ambitions not only to increase buy-to-let lending however but to change the way that lending is carried out. It uses cutting edge technology to streamline the lending process while also providing a bespoke, flexible service and a personal interaction with brokers.
Despite the challenging times that we now find ourselves in Landbay is on a very firm footing. As a technology driven company, Landbay has some of the most advanced systems in place. Therefore, it has been able to enable all of its staff to work from home while maintaining its service standards and service level agreements so they are as fast and effective as they ever were. Brokers can continue to access the BDMs and underwriting teams in the same way that they always could.
John Goodall, CEO of Landbay, said, “Becoming a Future Fifty company is a huge achievement and one that we are justifiably proud of. Being part of the Future Fifty can be a game changer and we intend to make the most of its growth programmes, its resources and the ministerial access it provides. We don’t only want to maximise the growth of Landbay, but to help change the shape of the whole buy-to-let industry providing brokers and borrowers with a vision of what lending could and should look like.”
