CROWDPROPERTY, the peer-to-peer property lender, has raised £907,467 via Seedrs to fund its expansion plans. The campaign hit its target funding of £600,000 within 40 hours of its launch on 20 November. The pre-series A equity round attracted 509 investors who invested an average of £1,783.

The money will fund the lender’s expansion plans, including investment in talent, technology development and marketing.
KUFLINK Group, which owns peer-to-peer property lender Kuflink, has appointed Narinder Khattoare as chief executive, following the departure of Tarlochan Garcha. The group has also added Sukhdev Dhillon and Nattalie Weekes, head of collections, to the boards of P2P lender Kuflink and bridging lender Kuflink Bridging. Khattoare said Kuflink Group has grown rapidly this year and needed to add fresh expertise to spread the responsibilities.
THE GOVERNMENT’S financial safety nets for UK homeowners have been shrinking over the past decade, a report has found. A safety net for individual home buyers in the UK was put in place during the deep recession of the early 1990s when large numbers of mortgage borrowers lost their homes. This was strengthened after the global financial crisis of 2008, but most of the funded measures are now being withdrawn.
@perfectpeonies It’s v bizarre. All I said was ‘you have the wrong number, this is Emily’z And he invited me to a stag party!!?! The initial (mistaken) invite said ‘we’re no longer wearing costumes’ so that had already put me off attending 😂
Helpfully told this bloke he’d texted the wrong person with his stag do invite...and my good deed led to being invited out with fire fighters and then this! 😮 Lesson learnt: don’t talk to strangers! 🤦🏻♀️ https://t.co/uHqVcEEYtf
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
