INITIATIVE IRELAND is a values-based financial services company setup in 2015, providing finance for residential housing developments nationwide. We offer fast, fair and flexible finance terms to experienced property developers. In addition to funding the construction of private housing nationwide for open market sale, we also have extensive experience in social housing finance, lending to both Property Developers and Approved Housing Bodies alike. We are committed to supporting a mixture of housing projects nationwide, to help tackle the unmet housing need across Ireland.


We are happy to engage with developers early-on, helping them to quickly structure their loans for approval. We aim to provide a term-sheet within 24 hours on most loans. While we take a 1st legal charge over the underlying properties, we have a track record of working through challenges. We are open, upfront and solutions focused as evidenced by our zero-loss and a zero-enforcement lending record. If you are an experienced developer looking for a funding partner you can rely on, then call us today.
