Andy Murray, currently ranked 2nd in the world of tennis, has invested in Landbay.

Landbay, the P2P mortgage lender, published a press release today where they announced that Andy Murray, the tennis player who is currently ranked as the second best player in the world, has invested in Landbay through their Seedrs fundraising campaign.  

Landbay, also recently announced a strategic investment from Zoopla, and this is their fifth Seedrs raise since December 2013. 
The proptech lender focuses on residential mortgages and has at the time of writing raised £1.2m through this Seeders round, exceeding Landbay’s initial target and enabling the company to focus on scaling its retail customer base.

Commenting on the investment, Landbay CEO John Goodall said, “We are delighted Andy Murray has invested in Landbay through our Seedrs campaign. Landbay helps people prosper from investing in British homes, one of the safest and best loved investment asset classes available, and the funding received from this Seedrs fundraise will continue to help Landbay democratise investment in the sector.”

At the time of writing, Landbay completes more than £5 million in new peer-to-peer mortgages each month, and the company is one of 8 members of the Peer-to-Peer Finance Association and the only peer-to-peer full member of the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

Landbay has previously raised approximately £3 million in private equity investment from both institutional and retail investors.

We hope Andy Murray will see great returns on his investment!
