We’ve won not one, but TWO, major industry awards!

The past week or so has been a tremendously exciting time for everyone here at Octane, as we've managed to win not one but TWO major industry awards….

  • Bridging Lender of the Year 2020 — Bridging & Commercial
  • Best Bridging Finance Provider 2020 — Business Moneyfacts

Oh, and to top it all off two members of our team were also highly commended in separate categories at the B&C awards:

Underwriter of the Year — Highly Commended — Gemma Salousti, Octane Capital

Lender Relationship Manager of the Year — Highly Commended — Liam Lawlor, Octane Capital

Well done to Gemma and Liam.

I’m incredibly proud of the entire team for all the hard work that made winning these prestigious industry awards possible, and also the brokers who voted for us and got us across the line. It really does mean a lot.

The only downer was the fact that the awards were carried out virtually, which is never quite the same as mixing in person with the great and the good from the industry, but then we’ll make up for it next year when things are hopefully back to normal.

As people who know Octane will be all too aware, we certainly won’t be putting our feet up now and taking it easy. That’s just not how we roll.

Not that we could even if we wanted to: the stamp duty holiday announcement made by the Chancellor earlier this month has seen a massive surge in demand for bridging among professional property investors and we’ve never been busier.

There may be question marks over the economy right now but a significant percentage of landlords and property investors are seeing the relaxed stamp duty regime as a major buying opportunity. And we’re here, as ever, to help them take it.
