Saxon Trust

About Saxon Trust

Our lending business was established in 2006 and has built a reputation as a leading, innovative and flexible specialist lender. Having previously traded as Calmez, we launched the Saxon Trust brand in 2020 to widen our appeal across a broader suite of loan products and to better assist our borrowers throughout their project life cycle.

A key feature of the business is that we are a privately owned company with our directors holding a majority of the shares, ensuring a direct link between our borrowers and those that run and own the business. We specialise in bridging and development loans from £100K to £5M* over periods of 6-24 months, secured against residential properties and construction projects across England & Wales.

  • We are specialists in bridging and development lending. We utilise our investment and development experience to provide a transparent range of customer driven products.
  • A diverse product suite. We offer property conversion, joint venture, and a range of development exit loans in addition to our core bridging, light to heavy refurbishment and ground-up development loans.
  • We are a small agile team. Our aim is to support our clients through every twist and turn in a volatile market, to finish projects, to create opportunities and to progress their business objectives. By doing so we build long-term relationships.
  • We simplify the complex. We leverage our multi-disciplinary experience to provide simple solutions to complex transactions.
  • Single point of contact. From project start to finish, our clients have one point of contact – even if they transition to another type of loan.
  • We are well capitalised. We are backed by a variety of institutional and private funding lines giving us significant flexibility. We are not dependent on one source of funds.
  • We are a bespoke underwriter of risk. No two transactions are ever the same, so we don’t follow computer driven algorithms or place generic caps on leverage or location.
