Team & History

HISTORY

Laxfield Capital was established in 2008, yet our experience goes back more than 20 years.

Our origins start in 1992 when Laxfield’s principals worked with the first wave of German banks entering the UK.

In the past 23 years, change has been the only constant feature of the European real estate markets, but through all this time, the principals of Laxfield have successfully navigated all market conditions, maintaining their excellent track record of no losses or defaults on loans under management.
