Case profile

They were looking to borrow £1.6 million; £1 million to replace the existing mortgage and £600,000 to finish building their main residence.

Traditional high street lenders were unwilling to lend the amount required based on the fact that income from the VCT had been lower in previous years because it was set up only 4 years ago.
