Excellion Capital, the boutique investment and advisory firm focused on real estate and asset-backed investments, has appointed David Horwich as VP Real Estate as it continues to deliver growth.

Horwich, whose expertise lies in buy-to-let, residential development, commercial investment and bridging finance, joins to accelerate the company’s growth and leverage the expertise of Excellion’s boutique team led by Robert Stafler and Ashley Marks.

Horwich was previously Director of Property Finance at Nextgen where he successfully grew and diversified the company’s revenue streams and created an in-house Buy-To-Let Finance division.

His appointment follows another successful year months for Excellion Capital, in which the company completed several flagship transactions across UK real estate. These include, amongst others:

  • the successful creation, debt & equity funding, development and opening of the 141-room Hotel AMANO Covent Garden, which Excellion delivered with its Joint Venture partner, AMANO Group;
  • arranging the c. £60m financing of nationwide social housing portfolio comprising 54 properties for Domus, the Social Housing platform of Fiera Infrastructure;
  • arranging a £110m loan facility for Red Oak Taverns, the operator of 200 pubs across the UK

In 2023, Excellion Capital already closed multiple real estate debt financings for its clients, and several term sheets for new transactions are already credit approved.

Over the coming year, the firm will further grow its real estate debt advisory business and continue to expand its proprietary investment portfolio.

Ashley Marks, Managing Director of Excellion Capital said:

“We’re delighted to have appointed David as VP Real Estate. His experience and track record in establishing a buy-to-let finance division speaks for itself.

2022 was another year of strong growth and performance for our clients and our own portfolio, and 2023 has also started surprisingly well.

David’s appointment is an essential part of delivering on our growth strategy, as we look to grow real estate debt advisory and expand our proprietary investment arm.”
