About Oper

We are on a mission to change the European mortgage landscape!

We did the research and borrowers are spending countless days sending documents, filling out forms and having phone calls with their broker or lender not knowing whether they will eventually get the loan. If you know there are 7 million mortgages closed in Europe every year, that’s a lot of phone calls, emails, and lost time…

With Oper, we are tackling this. We are a product-first company that provides lenders and mortgage brokers with an innovative SaaS solution to streamline their processes. In our first 2 years, we onboarded clients in 3 different countries, participated in 2 prestigious fintech-accelerator programs in London and Zurich, and raised capital from top-tier Fintech investors. Putting ourselves on track to reach our ambitions.

Currently, we have offices in Zürich (CH) and Antwerp (BE). Yes, we are taking Europe by storm.
