“I’m excited to be joining Invest & Fund at this important stage in its growth trajectory. The business is operating at the forefront of a market that is critical to the delivery of the Government’s housing targets, and has a well-developed, differentiated business model which sets it apart from more traditional lenders. This will enable it to assist property developers to deliver on these national targets, whilst delivering impressive, risk adjusted returns to lenders.

I was attracted by the impressive team that has been assembled within Invest & Fund, and by their drive, enthusiasm and ambition to succeed. I’ve met all of the team now and I’m pleased to have joined a business which has a great balance of talented but friendly people. I’m looking forward to the exciting journey that we are on as a business and will bring my experience from fast moving, large corporates and sophisticated financial institutions, to ensure I&F has a world class infrastructure and delivery platform to continue to meet the needs of lenders and borrowers.”
