After significant growth over the last year, property crowdfunding specialist, Property Moose, has secured a further £440,000 of equity funding from a syndicate led by The North West Fund for Digital & Creative, bringing the total raised to date to almost £1 million. This funding is expected to strengthen further growth for the company; to be invested specifically in marketing and technological innovation with the aim of refining the company’s digital platform to perfect the user-experience.
Property Moose, based in Liverpool, with offices in both London and Liverpool, is one of the UK’s leading property crowdfunding platforms, allowing members to invest in residential property from £10. The site has already concluded a wide range of crowd-funded property acquisitions located in key buy-to-let areas around the country, giving people the chance to diversify their investment portfolio.
Darren Schindler has become Executive Chairman and participated in the fundraise. Darren was previously Managing Director of Business & Commercial Banking at Metro Bank and has also held senior roles at Barclays Bank and HBOS, as well as being operationally involved in earlier stage businesses including a property-focused lending business.
