“Clearly Fintan is a very experienced development finance specialist; he brings a wealth of knowledge to BLG having established and successfully run development finance teams for a number of banks over the years. Fintan is very well connected and well liked within the industry, I am extremely delighted he is joining the BLG team and looking forward to working with him.”

Fintan O’Riordan, Business Development Director for BLG, said:

“Joining BLG was an easy decision for me. Having met senior management and, more recently, the rest of the team, I was impressed by their expert approach to development funding which has been honed over the last 10 years. What BLG does makes sense to me. It’s about structuring the deal so that it equally benefits the borrower and the lender. That balance is where the magic happens and long-term relationships are formed. In my role as Business Development Director, I have an important part to play in enabling BLG to support more customers and grow the business.”
