Home-financing startup Better.com has raised £132mn ($160mn) in its series C funding round.
Other investors included Activant Capital and Ping An Global Voyager.
The company’s total funding to date is now £209mn ($254mn).
The business was started in 2016 and aims to speed up the mortgage application process by digitising many elements, claiming to cut closing time down by as much as 50%.
