  • fees

You can subscribe to and access The Index on the Development Finance Today website.

Miranda Khadr, founder of Pitch 4 Finance, said: “The Index is an essential guide to help brokers better understand the ever-changing landscape of short-term and development lenders and is an important research tool.

“When it comes to matching solutions with individual cases, Pitch 4 Finance will provide brokers with the opportunity to submit their loan request to multiple lenders in one place, scanning the market to match their circumstances with lender criteria. 

“Matching lenders are then able to pitch for the loan, sending details of the terms they can offer.

“We are finalising the platform for launch in future months and believe that The Index and Pitch 4 Finance will combine to help more brokers place more cases, more successfully.”

The hardcopy version of The Index has been sent to subscribers, while the online copy can be accessed by everyone.
