AltFi’s inaugural Alternative Property Forum had a real buzz to it. There were a wide range of lenders presenting, and most agreed that the diversity of the property investment space is a real strength. Meanwhile, there was a great deal of talk about ‘where we are in the cycle’ – with most agreeing that we’re at a late stage, although LendInvest’s Rod Lockhart admitted that he’s been saying that for 18 months and prices have held firm. Perhaps the most prevalent theme was the idea that alternative property finance firms can have a real impact in helping to support SME housebuilders, and thus to help the government hit its housebuilding targets.
We look forward to welcoming all those who attended and more next time.
