Proplend has joined the RICS Tech Partner Programme.
The programme provides a platform for collaboration on innovation data and technology across the world and highlights the benefits of combining the complementary skill sets of professionals in the property and technology spaces.
The RICS Tech Partner Programme shares market insight and leadership content for the property profession and allows for networking on discussions on data and technology issues with industry peers.
As a partner, Proplend can now use the RICS Tech Partner logo on its website while the programme will list details of the peer-to-peer commercial property lending platform, its solutions and contributions to the programme, on its page.

“Increasingly commercial property investors are turning to alternative forms of commercial property finance,” Brian Bartaby (pictured), chief executive at Proplend, said in a blog on the platform’s website.
“Using technology to tokenise loans is a fast, flexible and cost efficient way to raise and deploy capital.
“We are delighted to be working with RICS and its network to promote the benefits the real estate sector can enjoy by embracing technology.”
In August, Proplend launched commercial property VAT loans and appointed an industry veteran to help roll out the new product, after using the lockdown period at the start of the year to evaluate its product offering and starting work on a new product.
