Residential and commercial bridging lender Ortus Secured Finance has expanded its team to meet booming demand from clients.

The principal lender, set up in 2013 and with offices throughout the UK in London, Belfast, Manchester and Glasgow, said it has appointed a number of new hires over the last two months as it continues to experience strong growth.

It said Daniel Eastwood has been appointed as Lending Manager within the Belfast office with his role focused principally on due diligence and loan management.

In addition, Rebecca Chapman has taken on the role of Internal Business Development Manager within its London office, with her role focussed on managing existing broker relationships.

Ortus has also expanded its finance team with the appointment of Joshua Andrews as Finance Manager.

“We continued lending throughout the pandemic, and we are proud to have remained a reliable option for brokers.  During the period we expanded our residential product range, became a CBILS accredited lender and grew our team.  We remain absolutely committed to supporting brokers when it matters most,” said Ortus Secured Finance’s managing director Jon Salisbury, pictured above.

Ortus lends from £100,000 to £25million, for terms of up to three years, secured over a wide range of residential and commercial property.

In August, the group revealed that, driven by the stamp duty holiday, residential bridging loan enquiries, had jumped by 25% from the previous month and up by 300% on the same month in 2019.

Demand has stayed constant since then the company said last month on joining the Bridging Loan Directory.

It puts its success down to its network of national offices giving them the local market knowledge and physical presence to make quick decisions.

The group also prides itself on reliability, consistently supporting brokers regardless of economic and political events, as well honesty and strong client communications.
