ABOUT US 

We are a specialist lending company providing loans secured against luxury assets. Our short term loans are designed for clients with liquidity challenges who need to raise funds quickly.

The group we are part of has lent over £150 million against luxury assets since 2010 and we are funded by Crestline Investors, Inc.(‘Crestline’), an institutional alternative asset manager. Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Crestline maintains affiliate offices in New York City, Chicago, London, Toronto and Tokyo.

Our experience in asset based lending combined with our in-house and independent appraisals panel enables us to create tailored lending solutions for our clients.
