Mortgage start-up Jungo partners with Aegon

Jungo, online mortgage provider lauched by IT company Topicus, announced partnership with Aegon as part of its innovative focus in the mortgage market. Jungo’s new platform will enable home buyers to crowdfund their mortgages.

This innovative cooperation between the two companies, gives private investors access to mortgage investments. Jungo’s founder, Vincent van den Noort, states that the partnership with Aegon “gives confidence and is a confirmation that we have put something unique in the mortgage market. With Aegon on board, we can grow faster and further develop our platform. Moreover, Aegon has valuable knowledge and experience, which we like to learn from.”
