Aldermore bank has provided a multi-million pound block bridging facility to SDKA Ltd, which will provide the funding they need to continue to accelerate their growth plans.

Established in 2016, SDKA is a principle, specialist lender offering short-term bridge finance secured against residential, mixed-use and commercial properties in England and Wales. SDKA is based in Cheadle, South Manchester.

Aldermore’s block bridging allows independent funders to raise capital against future income from bridging finance contracts in place between them and their customers. The finance will provide SDKA with the funding to support building their bridging lending portfolio, giving SMEs and individual customers greater access to funding.

SDKA’s established performing book, comprehensive end to end system and its ability to make robust lending decisions quickly and decisively, is what attracted us to their business. We’re delighted to be part of their funding panel and look forward to supporting Kunal and the team.”
