Castle Trust Bank joins the NACFB


Barry Searle Castle Trust

Castle Trust Bank has joined the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) as a Patron of the Association.

Established in 1992, the NACFB is the largest trade association for commercial finance brokers in the UK, with a vision to be the professional association of choice for all commercial finance brokers and lenders servicing the needs of business borrowers and property investors.

The Association partners with members to foster professional expertise and embrace the highest industry and regulatory standards, including engagement with stakeholders, to help businesses within the sector to prosper.

Castle Trust Bank has been providing short and medium-term buy to let and holiday let specialist finance for over ten years.

Backed by one of the world’s largest private equity investment firms, the bank will consider applications across England and Wales from a range of property investors including complex structures, limited companies, overseas ownership, portfolio landlords, first-time landlords, ex-pats and foreign nationals, and they will use holiday let income rather than AST in their affordability calculations.

Barry Searle, Managing Director of Property at Castle Trust Bank, said:

“We are delighted to join the NACFB as a Patron, and to support the services that its broker Members provide to property investors.

Our status as a bank enables us to provide certainty of funding, which has never been more important to brokers and their clients than it is at the moment.

We have a dedicated bridging team that uses its skills and experience to find solutions to situations that others may consider too complex to consider.”
