Hope Capital launches into the Scottish market PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 June 2015

As of the 1st June, entrepreneurial bridging lender, Hope Capital is launching into Scotland. 

It has an initial tranche of £10million worth of funds for Scotland, which will then be expanded and grown.  Hope will lend on commercial and residential property with non-regulated loans of up to £1.5m for six months or less.

Hope Capital is a true principal lender with its own funds which means it does not have to stick to rigid criteria however.  Instead it looks at every case on an individual basis, turning around loans in exceptionally quick timescales.

To help capitalise on the launch Hope Capital is now looking for new underwriters and additional BDMs to help with the expansion of business both in Scotland and throughout the rest of England and Wales.

Operating throughout England and Wales until now, Hope Capital more than doubled its loan book last year and expects to quadruple this again this year.  It also doubled its staff numbers in the last year and is looking to do so again as the business grows.

Jonathan Sealey, chief executive officer of Hope Capital says: “The time is absolutely right for Hope Capital to expand into Scotland.  With both the referendum and post election uncertainty out of the way there is a lot of positive sentiment in Scotland at the moment; the number of property transactions is increasing and house prices are soaring.

“Since we started exploring the opportunity to operate in Scotland earlier in the year we have already had a number of very interested parties looking to work with us. As we do in the rest of England and Wales, we are only looking to lend through the intermediary community; it is advisers that we have our relationships with and we are incredibly loyal to this sector.”
