The development finance lender is planning to expand its existing stretched senior lending platform, which benefits from a funding line from P2P Global Investments.
“When we look at commercial lending, we’re talking to SME operators that the banks are ignoring,” said Luke Townsend, chief executive of Zorin (pictured above).
Zorin also claimed that it was looking to launch a senior debt fund focused on residential development and was planning to raise up to £200m for the new fund.
Luke said the new senior fund would offer loans at 60% to 65% of GDV.

- Crystal Mortgages enters secured loan market
- New bridging lender enters the market
“The timing is right and the market is a large and growing one that is not fully satisfied.”
Zorin hopes the move will bring it into closer competition with the high street banks and give the lender access to a larger pool of potential lending options.
The lender will also continue to focus on stretched senior residential development lending.
