In addition to the fact that our team has a breadth of experience in both property and finance. The origins of central rural capital, start with our founder, Mr. Tony Denny. Tony is an entrepreneurial businessman with over twenty five years experience building one of the world's largest automobile distribution networks in the world. On his return to Australia, Tony became a property developer specialising in medium density residential developments. To that end, Tony could see the underlying frustration of developers and property professionals when it came to obtaining finance from their central real capital was born. And today we've moved to a new headquarters in Double Bay. The rationale for central capital entering the private lending market is that our founder could understand the frustrations with property developers and property professionals when it came to obtaining commercial finance. He saw that there was an opportunity to have a genuine speed to market and a less constrained credit process in order to facilitate property debt. Our borrowers at Central Capital, a property professionals and property developers who appreciate both improved leverage and better delivery times when it comes to obtaining property finance, we source these clients from a dedicated group of commercial brokers that we have in-depth relationships with. Central Capital's competitive advantage is three fold, speed, flexibility and reliability, speed and flexibility come from having a team of dedicated professionals at Central Real Capital with career experience in both property and finance.

Central Row Capital have taken a property developers mindset and applied it to private lending. We understand better than most the frustrations the property professionals and property developers have when obtaining finance.
