Robert Oliver Castle Trust

Castle Trust Bank has recruited Robert Oliver to become the specialist lender’s new Sales Director.

Robert has more than 20 years’ experience in intermediary lending, having previously held roles with Northern Rock, Virgin Money, Capital Home Loans and most recently with Together, where he was Head of Intermediary Relationships.

Castle Trust Bank offers bridging loans and term finance for a variety of investments, including holiday lets, HMOs, portfolio loans and property refurbishment.

It also has a popular Bridge to Let proposition and a specialist development finance offering.

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

“I’m really pleased to welcome Robert as our new Sales Director. He has extensive experience in intermediary lending, and is well known in the industry.

He has an important role to play in making our specialist Buy to Let and Bridge to Let loans, and development finance proposition available to even more intermediaries, through our growing distribution network.”

Robert Oliver, Sales Director at Castle Trust Bank, said: 

“What a great time to be joining Castle Trust Bank. In the last year I’ve read a huge amount about the certainty it’s able to deliver to brokers, with BDMs providing instant terms on term loans up to £500k and the Bridge to Let proposition providing a guaranteed exit route.

These features are going to be in high demand in 2021, and I am excited to now have the chance to lead the team that is taking them out into the market.”
