Arc & Co arranges £60m of commercial and development loans in Q3

Arc & Co arranged over £60m of commercial and development facilities in Q3 2018.


The specialist finance brokerage arranged more than £121m of funding for its clients in the same period across its three core areas (development and commercial, residential, and marine and aviation).

Arc & Co arranged 66 loans in the period, with an average loan size of over £1.8m.

The funding was provided by 41 lenders.

Andrew Robinson, CEO at Arc & Co (pictured above), said that it had had a very busy third quarter.

“From a liquidity and valuation perspective, the market continues to show plenty of volatility and uncertainty.

“It is in these uncertain times that clients have a greater need to be advised on their current and future financing structures.

“We have also noticed a substantial increase in the number of lenders.”

Andrew highlighted that since the last quarter, it had already experienced a 12% increase in the number of loans completed.

“While developers are experiencing longer sales periods, there is also an increase in the refinancing of developments.

“In many cases, the original development facility is due for renewal and the refinancing of the facility allows developers more time to achieve their maximum sales price.

“With the market so volatile, we are predicting another very busy quarter as clients are relying more than ever on trusted advisers to guide them through this unpredictable market.

“Along with our new strategic partnership with London Belgravia and the opening of our new office in the Cotswolds, I see this as the perfect time for us to grow our brand and presence in the marketplace.”
