By Bridging Loan Directory -

Centrado, the Mayfair-based packager, has announced it has been appointed a Preferred Partner of specialist short-term lender Omni Capital.

Centrado offers a full-service proposition to introducers and advisers seeking suitable financial solutions for their clients’ commercial, development, bridging and mezzanine finance needs.

Since launching in October 2011, Centrado has focused on developing strategic partnerships with brokers, lenders and other providers of niche property finance. Omni Capital is seen as a key lender partner with a complementary service and business ethos.

Centrado says it has received a positive response to its packaging proposition, and reports a growing pipeline of enquiries and new business applications received from a wide range of intermediary sources.

Mel Fordham, director at Centrado, said: “I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure this association with Omni Capital. Their product offering closely matches the enquiries being received by Centrado, and we already have several cases being processed.

“On a personal level, I have known the majority of the Omni team for many years. Together, they comprise a formidable unit. If previous experience is anything to go by, I’m sure their pragmatic, innovative and dynamic approach will see further evolution of their current range of exciting products. This can only benefit our clients, many of whom are deeply frustrated by the lack of appetite to lend from traditional sources”

Colin Sanders, chief executive officer of Omni Capital, added: “Mel is a highly-motivated and experienced individual. He brings a passion to his work that permeates all he does. Centrado has a clear and well-defined understanding of its place in the short-term finance sector. Working together, I’m confident we can deliver measurable benefit to both our businesses and to the intermediary community we serve.”
