Redesigning Global Financing

Who we are


Lendai is a fintech direct lender financing US real estate properties for foreign investors.  

Our mission is to change an outdated trillion-dollar market by utilizing technology to level the playfield for global investors in the US residential real estate market. We enable our customers to achieve their financial goals through digital solutions that create a simple, fast, and efficient online financing process. Our unique AI algorithms and an online platform are transforming the way foreign investors access US financing. 



How it all began


“A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that he has real estate assets in Arizona and is interested in leveraging them and acquiring more, but he can’t get a mortgage loan because he is not American. He couldn’t find a reasonable solution, and I realized that he is not the only one in this same position. Many private investors have a difficult time finding financing solutions for their real estate investment properties in the United States.  

So, I gathered Yair, Erez, and Tim, each one a star in his field, to join me in this journey. Our goal is to enable you, the global investor, to enjoy simple and cost-effective financing for your investment properties in the US. We want to allow you to increase your overall profits and achieve your financial goals.”
