What our customers say
Thank you for partnering with us on this project. It's been great to have had a knowledgeable funder who understood the project and allowed us to get on with doing what we do."
John & Sam, Property Development
I wanted a reasonable fixed rate of return with low risk. I like the way my money is combined with money from the other investors, the founders and their families to diversify the risk and to make loans in the South West."
Mrs B, Lyme Regis
It has been fantastic working with you all and we’ve appreciated your advice, support and efficiency throughout."
Vicki and Peter, Property Development
I invested because I trust the people behind Bricks and they are able to give me a much better rate of return than my bank. I like their business model and the way they focus on providing support for local businesses in the region which they know and understand.”
Mr R, Senior Partner with a Global Law Firm
I invested in Bricks over four years ago and have increased my investment several times since. The fixed rate of return is far better than anything available with the high street banks and I like to see where my money is being invested."
Mr A, Exeter
I love the fact that my money is being used constructively on projects throughout the South West and that I can see the tangible benefits that Bricks offers to both borrowers and investors."
We became investors in 2019 and invested more this year because we get a far better rate of interest and regular interest payments.”
Jeff and Karen, Exeter
Congratulations for the help you are giving to West Country businesses and your good stewardship of the investment funds.”
Peter and Gillian, Devon

This is our second deal and again we have achieved the first drawdown within 6 weeks from start to finish which is impressive!"

Being able to purchase the site would not have been possible without the backing of Bricks."

Bricks have given me the support I needed to do this. I couldn’t be happier to see it going up before my very eyes."
