Who We Are
Pivot started in 2012 as a vertical extension to a successful London-based property development business. Experiencing the challenges of raising finance first-hand, Pivot was launched with the mission of making the borrowing process as simple as possible. Our aim is to support our clients to twist and turn in this volatile market, to finish projects, to create opportunities and to progress their business objectives. We know that timing is everything.
Our expertise in the property market is well established and enables us to conduct business with a clear and complete understanding of our clients’ requirements.
Our roots lie in property development and our multi-disciplinary team have skills across:
Finance, Business Design, Asset Management, Planning and Development. This means we can assess a wide-range of transactions and work with our clients to collaborate for success. Our team ethos is to build long-lasting relationships and as a result, we repeatedly work with the same clients and introducers.
We have been using Pivot for some time now and have completed on every deal we have submitted. They are fast, efficient and make deals happen with ease. We will continue to use them for many years to come as their service and expertise are second to none.
Understanding a bridging or development deal is crucial and Pivot demonstrate time and time again that by the time we as their solicitors are instructed the deal is fully understood by everyone. This is essential to ensuring that the speed so often required can be assured. They work each case closely and are always available at the end of the phone to ensure that any obstacles don’t remain such for long. Their efficient and knowledgeable yet also commercial approach to underwriting ensures that the deals which many decline, often for the wrong reasons, can proceed with them through to completion followed by a successful exit.
Pivot were flexible in their approach, allowing me to keep my existing first charge with another lender. Their process was transparent and their team worked with me in a collaborative manner to ensure that I had the right solution for my requirements.
Pivot provided us with an initial loan for a project in Middlesex and we subsequently used them for two further projects. They have been professional in their approach, have suggested structures that we had not considered and have been very good to deal with.
