"Pontis Capital Management is an Investment Advisor specialising in Bridging Finance"
SECURED UK BRIDGING FINANCE
Traditional banks have, driven by various regulatory changes, and capital requirements, heavily reduced their ability to offer more flexible, bespoke Bridging Finance (regardless of levels of collateral).
On the other hand the demand for short term flexible finance has massively increased, due to structural issues around housing supply and demand (natural population growth due to ageing and net migration to UK ).
In a White Paper (‘Fixing our broken housing market’) the Government set out how it intends to boost housing supply:
"The consensus is that we need 225,000 to 275,000 or more homes per year to keep up with population growth and start to tackle years of under-supply.”
The ‘Pure SICAV RAIF S.A. Pontis Bridging Finance Fund’ is an open-ended fund regulated by the CSSF in Luxembourg. The fund invests in short term lending opportunities (Bridging Finance) secured primarily by UK residential property, with some commercial real estate and ‘mixed use’.
Focus will be on a diversified portfolio of mainly first charge loans and will be spread over a wide range of properties, borrowers and geographic locations.
The fund will only be open to so called “Well-Informed Investors” either directly or through other platforms such as Trusts, Pension Plans or Off-shore Bonds.
Share classes available are GBP, USD, EUR and CHF.
