The story of where
it all began

At Bircroft, we are at the heart of the UK’s property market, sourcing and delivering tailored funding solutions to assist with the development, purchase, re-financing and re-structuring of property assets and portfolios.

Acting on behalf of property companies, family trusts and high net worth private individuals throughout the country and across Western Europe, we have established an enviable reputation for delivering high levels of personal and professional service introducing quality borrowers to the lending market place.

Established in 2010 and still run by the original founders, since day one we have prioritised face-to-face communication with top lending institutions and associated professionals, developing successful long-term relationships within the property and lending markets. As a result, the team has placed c£12bn of debt with lenders worldwide for our clients.



Total transparency and integrity is at the heart of everything we say and everything we do. Clients trust us to put their interests first and foremost in our dealings with them.


We view ourselves as partners in both your short-term needs and long-term goals. That’s why long-term relationships are at the core of our business.


We have the expertise and experience to source the right solution for our clients finance requirements; and lenders know that we go the extra mile to ensure the deal is done on time and on brief.


As pioneers in debt brokerage we know how markets operate and have a successful track record of being able to adapt to any situation. It’s this flexibility and adaptability that keeps us at the forefront of funding opportunities.


Successful solutions are borne out of successful client relationships. That’s why we invest time to get to know our client’s, and listen to their goals and objectives for them individually and for the people around them.


We are business partners, not sales providers.

We believe that the best solutions come from forming honest and trustworthy partnerships with our clients underpinned by open and transparent dealings with financial institutions.
