Mortgage advice fintech lands £11m funding

Digital estate agent Strike has received £11m in funding led by Direct Line founder Sir Peter Wood and his new investment vehicle SPWOne.

Rather than charging commission or fees for selling homes Strike earns referral fees from mortgage lenders, insurance providers and conveyancing solicitors for the advice it provides sellers.

New backer Channel 4 Ventures also invested in the round as part of a media-for-equity deal, alongside existing investors Freston Ventures and Toscafund.
