Our investors

Coadjute is backed by global names who believe in our mission to remove the stress from the home buying and selling journey and improve the property market for the better.

COADJUTE'S VALUES

Collaborative

Coadjute means ‘to cooperate’ and we started Coadjute because we wanted to connect people across the property industry and enable them to work better together. As a result, collaboration, cooperation and teamwork are at the heart of who we are as a business. In practical terms, that means we seek to be open and independent, listen to others' views and show some humility about our own, show generosity in sharing what we have and can do with others, and always seek to support and build communities.

Innovative

At Coadjute, we see innovation as a means to an end, instead of innovation for innovation’s sake. We believe creating the future starts with setting a bold vision of how things could and should be. This then becomes a reality through a commitment to finding a way to achieve that vision. At Coadjute we value bravery, creativity, persistence and positivity, and share an unerring belief that any problem can be solved – even the challenges of the global property markets.

Trustworthy

We take the role we play seriously in enabling the property market to conduct their business and deliver outstanding service to their customers. We earn our partners’ trust by fielding a team that has deep expertise in their area, are open and transparent in their dealings, deliver on their promises, and provide a world-class standard of security and reliability in our technology.
