About Us

The Quivira Story

Quivira was founded by Rajiv Nathwani in 2011 after he envisioned outsized gains in the property market, through the niche practice of bridging finance. The company started off life as a small private lender with a loan book of under £50,000. Five years on, we have experienced exponential growth and have a loan book size of £30,000,000 - £40,000,000 at any given time, made up of private funders as well as institutional funding sources.
