About Octopus


Octopus is a fast-growing company with more than 500 employees. Since we launched in 2000, we’ve established market leading positions across financial services, healthcare and energy. Right now we’re in the process of moving from a singular business (Octopus) to a broader group structure incorporating Octopus Energy, Octopus Ventures, Octopus Investments, Octopus Property and Octopus Healthcare.


At Octopus Property, we’re different. We’re committed to providing exceptional customer service throughout the lending process, making sure we get the right decision for the borrower, as quickly as we can. And if we agree to do something, we’ll do it.

Our flexible approach to lending and commitment to customer service has won us numerous awards. But we’re not about to get complacent. We keep listening to our customers and enhancing our product range and service levels, to give each of our customers the best possible experience. It’s property lending the way it should be.


We are a specialist property lender with a genuine appetite to lend. Unlike other traditional bridging finance companies, we offer both short-term bridging loans (many for a matter of months) and extended bridging facilities allowing customers loan terms of up to five years.


We offer the largest loans in the bridging finance industry, ranging from £50,000 to £25 million. And we'll also consider even larger loans for experienced property professionals. As we are self-funded, every penny we lend is our own so we can deliver instant lending decisions and completion within days.
