Our story

In 2017 we saw too many people being locked out of home ownership so we decided to do something about it.

We started StrideUp to provide flexible and ethical home finance to help people achieve their homeownership dreams. It’s our vision to create a fairer housing market that’s inclusive and caters for diverse needs.

Who we are

Based in London, StrideUp is a diverse team made up of individuals from mortgage, finance and technology backgrounds. Despite our many backgrounds and experiences we all share a single goal - to make ethical and Shariah-compliant finance options easier for you! 

We believe individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs should have the opportunity to access home financing and we understand the difficulties many face in doing so. 

Our team is here to give you hands-on assistance and advice from day one, helping to make your dream home a reality. 

StrideUp is authorised by the FCA to provide regulated home finance.
