Post period end, one loan of £1.1 million was drawn, additional drawdowns of £1.9 million were made on existing loans and part loan repayments were received amounting to £0.67 million (including accrued interest).
Each loan will typically have a term of up to two years, a maximum 75% loan to gross development value ratio and be targeted to generate attractive risk-adjusted income returns.
