Christian Faes is the founder of Faes & Co, a lending business builder and F2 Finance, a US bridging lender writing loans since 2023.

Prior to starting Faes & Co, Christian founded, ran and ultimately IPOed LendInvest, a UK mortgage lending fintech. Founded in 2008, LendInvest is an original fintech, having lent more than GBP 6 billion to individuals and property developers to date. 

In this conversation, we dive pretty deep into the bridge loan a.k.a. short-term mortgage market, the role of technology in lending businesses, Christian’s goal of building a business in the US, the differences between the US, UK, Irish and Australian markets, all countries in which Christian has real estate lending experience, the economics of different types of fintech lenders and more.
