ASSETZ Capital has moved into a new office in Scotland as it looks to boost its presence in the capital.
The peer-to-peer business lender has moved into new premises in Edinburgh to accommodate up to nine members of staff.
“This is the second time we’ve upgraded our office in Scotland in two years, which is indicative of our performance in Scotland as well as the wider region,”John Hewitt (pictured), who heads up the northern regional team for Assetz Capital, said.
“With a strong appetite for funding and a significant pipeline of future deals, the whole of the northern team is in a fantastic position for growth, and this premise will allow us to accommodate even more staff as grow even bigger.
“We have grown from a one-man band to a team of nine in under two years. It is encouraging to see Assetz Capital invest in this team as we continue to expand our presence in the whole of the region.”
The Manchester-headquartered firm has welcomed two new recruits to the Scottish office in recent weeks.
Bruce Robertson joined as a relationship director after spending more than two decades in several senior positions in the corporate and commercial space at Bank of Scotland.
Assetz Capital also recently appointed Fraser Clark as regional support director, responsible for the approval, processing and completion of loans for the UK north region, which covers Scotland, Northern Ireland, North East England and Isle of Man.
