  • The value of property has had a dramatic effect on the economic landscape over the past year. While some believe that a securitized loan on a property is a safe investment perhaps recent events have shown otherwise. One financial industry which relies heavily on property valuation is bridging finance. Bridging finance is a subject which has been the basis of minimal academic research despite the myriad of topics the issue spans. This thesis sets out to explore the decision making process from a risk perspective in bridging finance loans. As house prices rise and fall through market shifts and currency exchange movements this thesis approaches the subject believing money to be a meta theory and thus adopts a paradigm of social construction. These views will be incorporated into a case study on one bridging company to ascertain how big a role valuation plays in the risk based decision making model.
