CAPITALRISE, the online property finance marketplace, has announced two new appointments to lead its lending and marketing activities.
Nick Oakley (pictured) has joined CapitalRise from real estate financiers Castle Trust as head of lending, while Lior Zaidner has been named head of marketing.
Oakley has over two decades of experience in real estate financing, most recently at specialist lender Castle Trust where he held the role of director of structured finance.
Zaidner joins from Cogress, the property-focused private equity platform, where he spent the past four years as marketing director and helped to grow its investor base.
“These high-calibre appointments come at a pivotal time for CapitalRise as we see interest surge from both investors attracted to our secure, income-led investment proposition and borrowers who continue to struggle to access suitable finance,” said Uma Rajah, co-founder and chief executive at CapitalRise.
“With two years under our belt and an established track record of delivering returns averaging 10 per cent, CapitalRise is now a proven concept and we need the best team in place to take it to the next level.
“I’m confident that both Nick and Lior, who respectively have a wealth of relevant experience, have the right skillset and enthusiasm to help drive the business towards meeting its ambitious growth targets.”
