Hope Capital kicks off year with aggressive expansion plans PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 January 2016

Bridging lender Hope Capital is planning aggressive expansion in 2016.  It has kicked this off immediately with the appointment of its latest business development manager who will focus on the Midlands.

Sanjay Patel, who has worked in the financial services market for more than twenty years, started his career in a local building society, before moving into mortgages and bridging. Due to his experience of working in the commercial broking world, he brings with him unrivalled knowledge and a host of valuable skills including underwriting and front line sales.

This announcement comes just four months after Hope Capital expanded into Scotland with the appointment of the lender’s Scottish business development manager Jim Wylie.

The specialist provider of bridging loans now has four business development managers across the UK and is currently focusing on increasing the team further with a particular focus on London and the South East.

Commenting on his new role at Hope Capital, Sanjay says, “I look forward to utilising my experience and network of contacts to build valuable working relationships and making a real difference to company and the broker community. I will also strive to help Hope Capital to continue to raise its profile while also increasing its market presence.”

Jonathan Sealey, chief executive officer of Hope Capital says, “Sanjay’s understanding of the importance of service when it comes to short term lending will help us to ensure our service standards to brokers and borrowers remain exceptionally high.

“We are continuing to expand throughout the UK and I am confident that Sanjay’s recent appointment will prove to be vital to the continued development of Hope Capital. Due to a range of criteria changes including the increase to our maximum loan size, 2015 was a very successful year for us. We will continue to work towards increasing awareness for the need for bridging. We will be improving our proposition making it even more favourable to bridging borrowers and brokers in 2016 continuing to help even more people with the short term finance they require.”
