The fund’s investment proposition is to take advantage of the vacuum created by banks withdrawing from short-term property lending in the UK, in order to deliver risk adjusted returns.

The short end of the lending market will allow lenders to obtain an interest rate premium and demand more security in return for making quick lending decisions.

The fund will provide a relatively short duration compared with other direct lending products. The investor funds will be used to finance loans with a maximum duration of 18 months secured against both residential and commercial properties in the UK.

Capital Bridging Finance Limited (CBFL) will serve as the fund’s captive origination platform and manage the entire lending process.

Steve Clark risk head and founder of Omni, said: "CBFL’s track record is a hard track, delivered on actual capital whilst operating as a stand-alone company unlike the paper track records being peddled by some other new launches within the direct lending space."
