Entering the Real Estate Industry
Catching the trend is something that Lex has been good at since the start of his Fintech career. To enter the competitive real estate market, Lex founded Capilex – a Dutch FinTech that provides automated mortgages. This mortgage-backed lending platform was created through market demand and real estate sector expertise. The company draws on past knowledge and experience to provide a refreshing lending experience while offering the best possible security to its funders.
Capilex assists customers with cashing in their real estate’s equity or purchasing new real estate. Their innovative technology helps them automatically approximate the risk of financing based on relevant data. With Real Estate as guarantee, the team at Capilex can offer fast, transparent and flexible finance solutions to their professional clients.
Processing a property mortgage application typically takes 24 hours. Capilex works closely with high net-worth individuals, institutional investors, and family offices looking to invest in a fast-growing company with a fully-compliant and highly secure organization.
Who is Capilex Targeting?
Capilex focuses on professional investors, real estate specialists, and small and medium-sized companies looking to finance a new project or refinance an existing one. Capilex offers loans such as construction financing, refurbishment financing, and bridge financing. It also provides tools for asset management. Capilex onboards clients via a digital KYC through which they can swiftly sign their mortgage contract with a notary and receive the funds.
What Are the Strong Suits of Capilex?
Although Capilex is relatively new to the market, it has been built on solid foundations. They boast a solid network of “trusted partners” that includes brokers, tax experts, notaries and lawyers.
The technologies to make automated mortgages possible are AI, Financial Algorithms and Legislation, including PSD2. These technologies enable Capilex to work faster, more cost-effectively and with greater decisiveness than traditional banks.
Capilex’s technology allows them to manage all their contracts by automating the analysis of the data received from the various partners. This includes the real-time triggering of any warning signals concerning their customers or their ecosystem. It takes months for banks to realize this.
Capilex’s success lies in its uncompromising approach to safety and quality. The company provides maximum security to its financial partners by fully pledging its clients’ first mortgage rights. A long corporate finance and credit scoring history makes for a professional, reliable, and solid partner.
