Ortus appoint new BDM for Scotland 


Chris Pallis Ortus Secured Finance

Ortus Secured Finance is ramping up its operations in Scotland to meet growing demand.

The group has appointed Chris Pallis as a Business Development Manager taking the team in its Scotland office to three. It first set up an office in Glasgow in 2018 headed up by Colin Anderson.

Chris joins Ortus with over 18 years’ experience working within the finance sector for many well-known names in the industry including Barclays, Santander and Skipton Building Society.

More recently, Chris has spent the last 5 years working in a specialist broker role within the Scottish community and so brings a wide broker network to Ortus.

Chris, pictured, said:

“I’m really pleased to be joining Ortus Secured Finance and my broker experience means I’m well placed to help Ortus increase their presence in Scotland.

My first few weeks have been really encouraging. The people here are a remarkable group and the knowledge and support they bring is unique.”

Jon Salisbury, Managing Director at Ortus added: 

“We’re delighted to welcome Chris to the team and it’s an exciting time for us as a business as we continue to strengthen our presence in Scotland.

There is a growing demand for specialist finance in Scotland and the Scottish market in particular has always been hugely important to us, ever since we did our first deal in the country in 2014.

Chris has a wealth of experience and expertise in financial services and we’re looking forward to expanding our network of brokers in Scotland and helping them find flexible, honest, and reliable finance for their clients.”

Ortus lends from £100,000 to £25million, for terms of up to three years, secured over a wide range of residential and commercial property.
