MortgageGym closes £3.8m funding round

Mortgage robo-adviser MortgageGym has closed £3.8m from investors, including LSL Property Services plc (LSL), the parent company of the UK’s second largest mortgage network.

 The GoCompare Group has also increased its shareholding as part of this investment round. Following the new investment round MortgageGym is valued at £12m despite only having fully launched its proposition earlier this year.

John Ingram, co-founder of MortgageGym, says the new funding round and strategic partnerships should help the form “revolutionise” the UK mortgage market.

“Other digital mortgage platforms are constrained by their aim to organically grow their customer-base and build broker support at the same time, while our compelling fusion of ‘bricks and clicks’ will allow us to rapidly alleviate homebuyers of the uncertainty and stress of mortgage applications on a national scale.”

“We have carefully chosen investors that not only bring funds, but invaluable, symbiotic business models and expertise. As a result, we do not need to invest in costly customer acquisition or building a broker-base.”
