We have secured an ENABLE Guarantee via the British Business Bank to boost lending to smaller housebuilders across to UK

The British Business Bank is a government-owned development bank. Their mission is to make finance markets work effectively so smaller businesses can prosper, grow and build UK economic activity. They design, deliver and manage finance programmes for the UK government to increase the supply of finance to smaller businesses. They do not lend directly but work with over 180 delivery partners to address existing gaps in the market. The British Business Bank is not authorised or regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).


United Trust Bank and Aprao have collaborated to promote the benefits of digital solutions in the Development Finance sector |  Press Release

Aprao’s relationship with UTB started with an article written by Aprao CEO Daniel Norman. Daniel’s article examined why so many property developers and house builders were still using Excel to present their appraisals, despite its many drawbacks. Our collaboration means that Developers, House builders and Intermediaries can share their schemes on the Aprao Appraisal & Feasability software with any one of our 24 regional BDM’s.
