Sirius Property Finance bolsters team with promotions and new hires


Sirius Property Finance continues to expand its central London office to take advantages of growth and opportunity in the specialist areas of the property finance market.

Sirius works with clients across all sectors of the real estate market looking for debt or equity funding arrangements. They look at transactions from £1million upwards across residential and commercial investment mortgages, development finance and bridging loans mainly in the UK, but also with links to funders in Europe and North America.

Sirius is a division of Brightstar Financial and Robert Collins was previously looking after the Brightstar Commercial & BTL teams as well as Sirius. However, due to the increased volumes of business and growing team numbers Robert is now moving full time to the London offices at the Royal Exchange.

Robert, pictured, said:

“With the expansion in all the different businesses it was clear that a restructure was required to ensure our continued success. I am very excited to be concentrating on the Sirius business full time now and it also means that I can devote much more time to actually writing business, which wasn’t always the case with three separate divisions to manage.”

As part of this restructure Nicholas Christofi has also been recognised for his role as a founding member of Sirius and has been promoted to Director.

Nicholas has been at the forefront of Sirius since its inception and has a reputation as one of the best development and short-term finance brokers in London.

He commented:

“Sirius was at the forefront of my move over to Brightstar and I am delighted to be working with some of the best advisers in the industry and establishing the division as one of the premier high net worth property financiers in the UK.”

The central London team is further strengthened by recruitment of Manoj Chitroda. He has had a very successful career in both banking and finance broking and brings further expertise and connections to the Sirius office.

The new hires continue rapid growth at Sirius, which moved into larger City office space earlier this year, and bigger premises are already being negotiated in anticipation of further recruitment.
