Mortgage disrupter Habito has secured £35m Series C funding.
The digital mortgage company has also become B Corp certified – a legal commitment to put people and the planet on the same level as profit.
Founded in 2016, Habito says it has helped more than 330,000 people better understand their mortgage needs and submitted around £4.5 billion worth of mortgages.
Daniel Hegarty, CEO and founder of Habito said: “We’re proud to take our place in the global movement of companies using business as a force for good and especially proud to be the first UK mortgage company to become certified.
“For us, it’s not just about revolutionising home ownership in the UK, but also about getting our own house in order and looking after our Habito community.
“B Corp recognises our intent to have a measurable impact on the world. This is only the beginning; it’s our pledge to do better in the world and we’re looking forward to making this intent a reality.”
Habito has now raised more than £60m total funding and is backed by the likes of Augmentum Fintech, Atomico, Mosaic Ventures, Ribbit Capital, Regah Ventures, SBI Group and mojo.capital.
