New property finance boutique West Rock Capital launches today


launch specialist finance

Today saw the official launch of West Rock Capital, a London-based boutique debt advisory business headed up by Westley Richards.

A well-respected figure in the industry, Richards has already arranged £50m of property finance through a variety of lenders since soft launching West Rock Capital in April of this year.

Covering the whole of the UK, West Rock Capital will arrange finance across the capital structure, from bridging and development finance to mezzanine and longer term investment finance.

Richards has more than 20 years’ experience in real estate finance, working at investment banks such as Credit Suisse and, more recently, at a Mayfair-based debt advisory business.

West Rock Capital covers all real estate asset classes and represents a wide range of high net worth individuals, property companies and funds based in the UK and overseas.

Westley Richards, Founder, West Rock Capital, commented:

“It’s fantastic to have all systems go and to be able to officially launch with £50m of finance already completed through some of the major specialist lenders in the market. As a company, we are able to cover every area of real estate finance and pride ourselves on the length and durability of the client and lender relationships we have built up over the years, which will now continue through West Rock Capital. We‘re great believers in the fact that if you deliver value to a client they will use you again and again, and that philosophy is one we intend to stick to as we seek to grow our business.”
