The news comes as Habito moves to become a direct lender in buy-to-let mortgages.
Augmentum Fintech, the listed fintech investor, this morning revealed a new addition to its portfolio with a £5m investment in online mortgage broker Habito.
The news was not accompanied by an announcement from Habito, and the company declined to comment on the funding, indicating that the Augmentum cash could be part of a larger funding round still to be announced.
The company’s last funding round was its Series B in September 2017, in total Habito has raised £29m, now including Augmentum's fresh capital.
